Fluffy Yogurt Scones


A basket for a friend filled with fluffy cranberry scones.
Ready to eat with...a small jar of berry jam, a spoon & a knife.

 Light and Delicious!
They were a hit!

Preheat Oven to 425 degrees. 
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
Sift together 2 cups all purpose flour, 2 tea. baking powder, 1/4 tea. salt and 2 tbl. sugar.
Place in a food processor or mixer.
Add 1/4 cup butter and mix until you have coarse crumbs. 
Turn into a bowl and stir in a 1/2 cup dried cranberries.
  Make a well and add 3/4 cup plain yogurt and mix just til moistened.
Turn onto a floured board and knead gently for 30 secs.
Form dough to about 2 inches thick and cut into 10-12 rounds with a cookie cutter.
Place the scones on to the baking sheet and brush the tops with yogurt. 
Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 12-15 mins. until lightly brown on top.  
Cool and eat or freeze up to 3 months.

I'm reading your post while enjoying my first cup of coffee and wondering what to have for breakfast. Yumm, I think I just found it. If only I didn't have to make them. Maybe I'll bake them later and have them tomorrow. They sure do look light and fluffy. A winning combination.

I love to make scones. (I love to make anything I can top with butter!) A couple more ideas: toss in 1/2 cup white chocolate chips! OR use French Vanilla Yogurt! All so tastely!
Hugs, Heidi
