- Active Time 15m
- Total Time 35m
Makes 8 scones
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 2/3 cup chilled margarine or butter
- 1/3 cup buttermilk or yogurt
- 3/4 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- 1 egg, beaten
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornmeal and baking powder. Cut up the margarine or butter into 1/4-inch cubes and using your fingertips, squeeze the butter into the dry ingredients until you have a well-blended, mealy mixture.
Add the buttermilk or yogurt to the mixture. Add the blueberries, mixing to incorporate. The dough will be slightly sticky. If it is too sticky to handle, add a tablespoon of flour.
Divide the dough in half, shape into 1-inch-thick disks. Place on a buttered baking sheet. Brush with the beaten egg, then cut a deep X into the top of each scone. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes until golden brown.
