Ingredients

  • 1 1/3  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 2/3  cup  yellow cornmeal
  • 2  tablespoons  granulated sugar
  • 2  tablespoons  packed brown sugar
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  baking powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  salt
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/3  cup  cold butter, cut up
  • 1/2  cup  buttermilk
  • 1  egg
  • 1 1/2  teaspoons  finely shredded lime peel
  • 1  cup  frozen blueberries*
  • 1  teaspoon  cornstarch
  • 3 - 4  teaspoons  lime juice
  • 1  cup  powdered sugar
  • 3  tablespoons  chopped almonds, toasted
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine flour, cornmeal, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut in butter until flour mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center. Combine buttermilk, egg, and peel; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir with a fork just until moistened.

3. Toss berries with cornstarch to coat; add to flour mixture. Stir gently 3 to 5 turns, just until berries are incorporated (do not overmix). Using a large spoon, drop dough into 12 mounds on baking sheet, leaving 1 inch between mounds. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until tops are golden. For icing, in a small bowl whisk enough lime juice into powdered sugar until drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm scones. Sprinkle with nuts. Serve warm. Makes 12 scones.

4.
