Easy Corn Scones
They turned out good - they have a crunchy outside and a great flavor for either savory or sweet toppings. I used butter and sweet potato butter.

- 1/4 c
- 1/4 c
- self-rising cornmeal
- 1 1/4 c
- bisquick baking mix
- 1/2 c
- (or so) buttermilk
1Preheat oven to 450°. Prepare a biscuit pan or stone baking sheet. I prefer the stone for my scones and biscuits. You do not need to grease it, but if using a metal pan you might benefit from lining it with parchment.
2Stir together the sugar and cornmeal. Stir in the Bisquick until all are well-blended. Stir in the buttermilk until you get a soft dough, not a batter. It should leave the sides of the bowl and look like it's ready to turn out and knead.
3Turn the ball of dough out onto the prepared pan. Flatten into a round disk about 3/4" high. Cut with a pizza cutter into 8 wedges, but do not separate them. Let set at room temperature about 10 minutes, until oven is fully preheated.
4Bake 12-15 minutes until softly done in center. Cool for 5-10 minutes on the pan, then slice with a serrated knife along the lines of the wedges. Serve with butter and jam or fruit butters. Good with soup, too!
