This is from TOH magazine. I haven’t made these yet, but I am typing it up for ZWT II. 8 servings.
Make and share this Featherlight Scones recipe from Food.com.
- 3 cups flour
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup cold butter
- 1 egg
- 1 cup vanilla yogurt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 teaspoons milk
- In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Stir in the egg, yogurt and vanilla until just combined. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 6-8 times.
- Roll into a 9 inch circle; cut into 8 wedges. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
- Brush tops with milk; sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
This was so easy to make and my husband loved it! I did add about 2 tablespoons of brown sugar to the topping amd it was great :)
My mom has made these for years (she found it in TOH as well) and passed it on to me. I thought scones were hard to make and turned out dry and crumbly, but these scones changed my mind! They are absolutely fabulous and I would recommend them for any first-time scone maker. Thanks for posting it and saving me the trouble. :)
I made a couple of addtions... Since it wasnt exactly what I wanted. Didn't really care for the recipe.. I guess its a good basic recipe that you can mold to fit your desires though. They tasted like I had used bisquick mix.. which I could have.. but thats not what I was wanting. I put 1/3 cup sugar in the mix as well as a cup or so of dried cranberries. And just dropped 8 of them on a cookie sheet instead of all that rolling and cutting (Since I don't have a rolling pin). And I had to cook them about 10 minutes longer than stated. Theyre just 'OK'. =)
