Eggless Cornmeal Cranberries Scones

Cornmeal (ground maize) is an excellent source of iron, zinc, B vitamins and magnesium. Along with sago, quinoa, buckwheat, rye, barley, oats, tapioca and cassava, it can provide a useful wheat alternative if you feel you have a wheat intolerance. Cornmeal flour can be used to make bread or muffins. A coarser grind is also used to make polenta, a popular Italian dish. Cornmeal and polenta can be stored in airtight container in the refrigerator for upto 3 months and can be frozen for 6 months.Cranberries are actually a type of acidic berries that are rich in vitamin C and believed to contain excellent infection fighting properties.

one more friendly advice dear..
try to avoid vegetable shortening..it is high in transfat and not a healthy option..
you can find an article about this here.

we have to careful while choosing low fat or fat free options.. sometimes they are unhealthier than the regular fatty ones :(

The only improvement I made was using SPROUTED 100% whole grain flour in place of all-purpose flour. This flour digests as a vegetable and made the scones taste absolutely delicious. Shiloh Farms sells it. Thanks for the recipe!

I've started using cornmeal in my baked good recently and I'm loving the texture it gives. I'm sure the scones would have tasted great as well like many other creation of yours.
