Recipe Ingredients for Cornmeal Scones

2 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup cornmeal
1/3 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
1 cup half and half
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Recipe Directions for Cornmeal Scones

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C) and place the oven rack in the center of the oven. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt, orange zest and stir well.

  3. In a small measuring cup whisk together the cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Add this to the flour mixture and stir just until the dough comes together.

  4. Transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead dough gently four or five times and then pat, or roll, the dough into a circle that is about 7 inches round and about 1 1/2 inches thick. Cut this circle in half, then cut each half into 3 pie-shaped wedges (triangles). Place the scones on the baking sheet. Brush the tops of the scones with a little cream.

  5. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
