Cornmeal adds a slight crunch to these breakfast or brunch treats. Kathy Zielicke of Moore Haven, Florida writes, "These scones are nice with a cup of hot tea or coffee. For a change of pace, try them with the dried berries of your choice. They're sure to brighten your day."

It is hard to believe these scones are healthy. They are so delicious! I like a larger scone (I know I am increasing my calories) but I cut my circle into 8ths.

Good, very tasty liht scone recipe! Made it with 4 tbs. (1/4 c.) butter instead of oil. I didn't have buttermilk, so I used light sour cream. It was very good, orange zest adds a nice flavour. I may have added a wee bit more sugar if I were to make it again. :)
