DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • Coat cookie sheet with non-stick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine first 6 ingredients.
  • Cut into dry ingredients the plum puree and cold margarine with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add yogurt and mix until just blended.
  • Stir in dried fruit.
  • On a floured surface, roll or pat dough to 3/4 inch thickness.
  • Cut out with a 2 1/2 to 3 inch biscuit cutter, rerolling scraps as needed.
  • NOTE: The less you handle the dough the better so be sure to get as many as possible the first time.
  • Arrange on cookie sheet, spacing 2 inches apart.
  • Brush with beaten egg white and sprinkle with sugar.
  • Bake in the center of the oven for about 15 minutes or until golden brown and springy to the touch.
