Orange Yogurt Scones

This is a great breakfast or snack. "My mother handed down this recipe to me when I moved out of the house," recalls Hollye Chapman of Corvallis, Oregon. "It produces a very light scone that tastes great with orange marmalade, lemon curd or most kinds of jam. Use any flavor fruit yogurt if you don't have orange," she adds Recipe Source: TOH

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. In another bowl, whisk the yogurt, orange juice and peel; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.
  2. Transfer dough to a greased baking sheet. Pat into an 8-in. circle. Cut into eight wedges, but do not separate. Sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 400° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

WOW, these are delicious. I did need to add in a bit more (maybe 3 tablespoons) of yogurt to get everything to come together. I'm sure that that was my flour being overly dry though because I have add a bit more liquid to almost all of my baking recently. This cones together very quickly and I only kneaded it 4 turns as it looked perfect at that point. I used Crystal margarine (Canadian brand Healthy Balance) and Splenda for the sugar. They are light, very tender and simply scrumptious. Thanks for sharing Ceezie
