Hey remember that leftover cranberry pulp a bit back? Here is a use for some of it.

Cranberry Cornmeal Scones

  • 1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 4 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 4 tbsp cranberry pulp (sauce or jam can be used too)
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk

Heat oven to 425. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Cut butter into flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. Add cranberry pulp and enough buttermilk to form a rough dough. Quickly knead dough until it forms a smooth ball, about 1 minute. If too sticky add more flour, to dry more buttermilk. Press into a seven-inch disk and place on a greased baking sheet. Cut into eight pieces but do not separate. Bake until done in the center and brown on top, about 20 minutes. Serve drizzled with honey or sorghum.

  1. I love everything about this. Wish there was a LOVE button. An amazing texture and a perfect fruit and flavor to deliver with it. I’d love it without the honey or sorghum, as well.
