Two Types of Cornmeal Scones

Blueberry Lemon Cornmeal Scones OR Carrot Orange Cornmeal Scones for this weekend anyone?!

These scones  from Run Fast Eat Slow and are super easy and simple to make.  Impress all your friends and family with these treats for the morning.  I made the original blueberry lemon scones, and then couldn’t resit making carrot orange one very soon after.

I recommend blueberry jam (especially with the blueberry lemon ones)or butter when serving these treats.  I used a delicious homemade blueberry jam that my Aunt Barbra gave to me! It was amazing.

I used grass-fed butter in these scones.  Grass -fed butter is proven to be much higher in omega-3 fatty acids, and fat soluble vitamins

I like to use my hands to combine the dry ingredients and the butter.  You want the butter to be pea-sized.

This is the finished dough, without the blueberries or the carrots added in.  The dough should be on the drier side, and it is not fully mixed in this picture because I still needed to mix in the blueberries/carrots.
