This turned out to be one big, bad snickerdoodle. Instead of scoring the dough before baking, I placed the entire disk in a preheated 10" cast iron pan, baked it then sliced into 8 pieces. Much easier. Substituted whole milk plain yogurt for sour cream. For the topping, I used raw sugar because the crystals are larger and prettier. Reviewed for the Oma Challenge for Germany/Benelux for the ZWT.

Yummy! I added a powdered sugar glaze right out of the oven and they soaked it up, making them even more moist. Definitely a keeper.

My favorite scone ever and I'll be making these again and again. They were delicious with butter and especially with a drizzle of honey. I love that scones are super easy anyway, but the sour cream baking soda mixture made them lighter and just a delight! Made for ZWT 6 by a fellow Looney Spooner! Thanks Charmie!!!
