This is out of a Weight Watchers cookbook called "Two's Company". I always double it and freeze them. DH gave them an excellent rating. They are easy to make and oh so good! 4 pointplus per scone. Hope you enjoy! Update: Just made these again tonight. You can use any dried fruit like, apricots (my favorite), dates, raisins etc. I add the dried fruit to the flour mixture before adding the yogurt. I plan to make them with dried apples, adding a touch of cinnamon and topping them with cinnamon sugar. I also use 1/2 the sugar on top.

5 stars especially considering the low cal/fat of this recipe. Didn't have yogurt, so used sour cream and it worked great. Also used 1/3 of a large fresh peach diced.

Just made a batch of these and they turned out quite good. I made a few changes, used whole wheat flour, cinnamon and cinnamon chips instead of peaches, and they were delicious. Will definitely make these again. Thanks for a quick and tasty recipe!

Amazing scones. They pack a lot of lovely peach flavor without a lot of fat. I used Splenda for the sugar, fat free plain yogurt with a small splash of pure vanilla extract and soft tub margarine. They are fluffy soft inside, moist and very tender. I must also say that I love that this recipe makes 4 because I always have to cut the bigger recipes back and as good as the Zaar conversion tool is I sometimes think that the results might be better if I didn't have to resize from 24 to 6. Thanks you Teresa for a great recipe that I will make over and over!
