Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup blue cornmeal
    • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1/3 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 lb chilled butter
    • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 milk
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease and flour a baking sheet.

Stir the dry ingredients in a bowl, then cut the butter into the dry mixture with a pastry blender (or suitable substitute) to form a coarse meal.

Beat the egg with the milk, sugar, and vanilla. When smooth, stir into the other mixture until the dough holds together. Knead briefly on a floured surface; pat into an 8" circle; place on baking sheet.

Using a pizza cutter or serrated knife, score circle into 8 wedges. Bake for 15 or 20 minutes (depending on high or low altitude) or until nicely brown. Serve with honey, fruits, jams, or, as the British say, with clotted cream. Best straight from the oven but still great the next day
