"Flaky and light, these scones are perfect for snacking or for breakfast. Made from ingredients you probably have on hand, they can be a special treat any time and are one of my favorite breakfast recipes to have with tea or coffee."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Mix flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Add butter and mix with fingers until coarse crumbs form. Gently mix yogurt, egg, and vanilla extract into flour mixture until dough is just combined.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead briefly, for five or six turns. Pat or roll the dough out into a 1-inch thick round. Cut into 8 wedges and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush each wedge with milk and sprinkle with remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Serve warm or cool completely and store in an airtight container.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • I like to make mine into circles and press a few milk chocolate chips into some of them for variation prior to the milk/sugar coating. I'm also thinking of using different flavored yogurt to see what that tastes like.

I used 8 tbsp of butter; instead of vanilla yogurt, which I thought I had but did not, I used strawberry yogurt, and I added 1/2 tsp of grated lemon peel. They came out delicious.

Nice, scones as good as any others , but don't require cream, half and half, buttermilk, whole milk, etc.
