Recipe by teresas
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.

- 1 tablespoon chilled butter or 1 tablespoon margarine, cut into small pieces
- 1⁄3 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
