From a Dannon yogurt container.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon table salt
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 6 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into pieces
- 1 cup blueberries or 1 cup raspberries
- 1 egg
- 3⁄4 cup vanilla yogurt
- 2 tablespoons coarse sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Ina bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
- Stir in sugar.
- Add butter and, using a blender, work it into the flour mixture until it resembles a coarse meal.
- Stir in berries.
- In a separate bowl combine egg and yogurt and mix until blended.
- Stir into flour mixture and mix until just blended (dough will be soft).
- Turn onto a floured board and knead lightly 3-4 times. Pat dough into a circle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough into 12 wedges and place on an ungreased pan. Sprinkle scones with sugar.
- Bake scones 12-14 minutes or until golden.
Wow, these are absolutely delicious! They puffed up beautifully - I must remember next time to separate my wedges more, as they puffed up and joined back together again! No matter, they were still absolutely beautiful! Even my parrots were begging for more! These are definately one of my PAC Fall favourites! Made for PAC Fall 2009 - you were adopted!
Although I bought the wrong yogurt (plain natural) and added 3 tsp vanilla and 3 tsp splenda), this recipe is amazing. I had scones all over England and these are much better. I also used raw sugar to sprinkle on the scones before baking. Now I just need a recipe for the custard.
I loved the texture on these. I ended up having to use cherries, long story, but it all worked out well. The yogurt adds a lot of moisture to the dough and makes it versatile for adding other fruits. Thank you for posting. Made for Spring PAC '09.
