Recipe from 
Servings: 12
Prep Time: 25 mins
  •     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
  • 1/2   cup   buttermilk
  • 1      egg
  • 1 1/2   teaspoons   finely shredded lime peel
  • 1    cup   frozen blueberries*
  • 1    teaspoon   cornstarch
  • 3 - 4    teaspoons   lime juice
  • 1    cup   powdered sugar
  • 3    tablespoons   chopped almonds, toasted
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray; set aside.
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.
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.
  • *Test Kitchen Tip: Leave berries in the freezer until ready to toss with cornstarch.
