Ingredients:

Topping

  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp freshly grated lemon peel

Scones

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 2 Tbsp sugar
  • 4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 Tbsp cold butter, cut into 6 pieces
  • 1/3 cup half & half
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp lemon peel, grated

Preparation:

Topping

Combine sugar and lemon peel in small bowl; set aside.

Scones

Preheat oven to 400° F. Combine flour, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt in large bowl; cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in half & half, eggs and 2 teaspoons lemon peel just until moistened.

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface; knead 5 to 8 times until smooth, adding only enough flour as necessary to keep dough from sticking to surface. Pat dough into 9-inch circle on greased baking sheet. Sprinkle topping evenly over dough. Score circle into 8 wedges with knife, do not separate.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes. Carefully separate scones.

Variation:

Prepare scones as directed above, stirring in 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped dried apricots or chopped pecans with flour.
