These are a favorite at Hidden Falls, a Canadian Bed and Breakfast in Canmore, Alberta. They stay soft and moist!

Delicious! My only changes were to use butter ( I can't imaging using margarine) and topped with sugar crystals instead of powdered sugar. I used slightly defrosted cranberries which I cut in half before adding to the dough, I might increase the amount next time because we really enjoyed the flavor and there was room for more. I cut them scone style, and taste and texture wise they are more scone then biscuit. Thanks for a great recipe Sharon. Made for PRMT.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375*F.
  2. Combine yogurt and egg in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. In large bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in margarine until it looks like small peas.
  4. Stir in cranberries (or craisins), sugar and orange rind.
  5. Add yogurt/egg mix and stir to a soft dough. (it may seem a bit dry, but be careful about adding extra yogurt as it goes wet very easily).
  6. Roll or pat on floured surface to 3/4 inch thick, and then cut in circles, place on parchment paper on ungreased cookie sheet and bake 15-20 minutes.
  7. While still warm, brush tops with melted butter and dust with powdered sugar. Serve them with butter and jams on the side. Enjoy!
