Cornmeal-Cranberry Scones

These are very soft, crumbly and melt- in- the -mouth kind of delicacies. It has rich cornmeal flavour and it is neither a cookie nor a cake and is very mildly sweet. It does not need any side dishes like butter or jam and one can enjoy it as it is with a cup of tea or coffee.

Ingredients:

All-purpose flour- 1 cup

Cornmeal- ¾ cup

Butter- 100 grams

Dried cranberries- ½ cup

Baking powder – ¾ teaspoon

Baking soda- ¾ teaspoon

Salt – ¼ teaspoon

Sugar – ½ cup

Buttermilk – ½ cup (chilled)

Topping – Sugar crystals

Method:

  • Preheat oven at 170 C
  • Take one mixer jar or food processor. Put all the dry ingredients like flour, cornmeal, salt, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar. Dry grind all these for a couple of rounds.
  • Chop the butter into bite size pieces and add. Again dry grind until flour becomes crumbly and wet.
  • Add buttermilk and run the food processor. The dough will become a little sticky.
  • Line the cookie tray with butter paper.
  • Drop the dough into lined cookie tray either by using spoon or ice cream scoop.
  • Sprinkle some sugar on top and bake this in a pre-heated oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • It yielded 15 scones for me and I have used small ice cream scoop to scoop out the dough.
