Looking like spring time, cute little biscuits. 

Cornmeal Daisy Biscuits
Cooking Light 1994

1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp butter or margarine
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 Tbsp flour
Preserves of your choice I used whole berry cherries, or strawberry jam or jelly

Combine the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, soda, salt and the sugar in a medium size bowl. Mix this then add the butter and use your pastry blender to combine all. You want it to resemble coarse meal. Break the butter up into the smallest pieces as possible. Add the buttermilk and stir just enough to combine. Sprinkle your pastry board with the 1 Tbsp of flour and knead the dough 3-4 times. Roll out to about 1/2 inch thick and cut with a biscuit cutter. They suggested a 2 inch cutter I used a little larger one. Then cut the biscuits with a knife 4-6 times to resemble the petals of flowers. Place in your prepared baking sheet. Press your thumb in the center of each biscuit and place about 1/2 tsp of jelly in the center of each biscuit. Bake at 425 degrees for about 10 minutes or until light brown.
