Ingredients

2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/3
cup cornmeal
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup firm butter or margarine, cut into 8 pieces
3/4
cup buttermilk

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°. Mix flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Cut in butter, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in buttermilk so dough leaves sides of bowl and forms a ball.
  • 2 Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead lightly 10 times. Pat or roll into 7-inch circle on ungreased cookie sheet that has been sprinkled with cornmeal. Score top into 8 wedges, cutting down halfway to the bottom.
  • 3 Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; carefully separate wedges. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

If the dough is too dry, stir in an additional 1 to 2 tablespoons of buttermilk.

Serve these savory scones with hot-pepper jelly or honey.
