These are sooooo Good,, Normally I find scones too dry But these are delicious! Just don't let them over cook

Ingredients

Nonstick cooking spray

1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour

2/3 cup yellow cornmeal

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/3 cup cold butter, cut up (Land-0-lakes sticks work best)

1/2 cup buttermilk

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoons finely shredded lime peel

1 cup frozen blueberries (leave berries in freezer until ready to toss with corn starch per directions below)

1 teaspoon cornstarch

3 - 4 teaspoons lime juice

1 cup powdered sugar

3 tablespoons chopped almonds, toasted
***********************************************
Directions

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.

2. In a large bowl combine flour, cornmeal, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut in butter until flour mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center. Combine buttermilk, egg, and peel; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir with a fork just until moistened.

3. Toss berries with cornstarch to coat; add to flour mixture. Stir gently 3 to 5 turns, just until berries are incorporated (do not overmix). Using a large spoon, drop dough into 12 mounds on baking sheet, leaving 1 inch between mounds. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until tops are golden. For icing, in a small bowl whisk enough lime juice into powdered sugar until drizzling consistency. Drizzle over warm scones. Sprinkle with nuts. Serve warm. Makes 12 scones.
YUMMY grin

It's interesting how one place always has one grocery item and it's rare in another place. We have all sorts of frozen berries here and always have.
