1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup yellow cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup minced green onions
2 tablespoons chopped fresh sage
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1 cup 1% low-fat milk
Cooking spray
12 sage leaves


Preheat oven to 400°.

Lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine the flour and next 4 ingredients (flour through black pepper) in a large bowl. Stir in shredded cheddar cheese, minced green onions, sage, and thyme. Add milk, stirring just until moist. Drop dough by 2 level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Gently press 1 sage leaf into the top of each scone.

Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
