“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.”

Ingredients

Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 8 scones

Directions

  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.

Wonderful recipe! Used Banana flavored chobani (because that is what I had) and added one mashed ripe banana to highlight the banana flavor. Also added some cinnamon and nutmeg to the dry ingredients. Next time I will glaze them! Thanks for the recipe Paula!

Oh my goodness. I usually sort recipes by rating or popularity, but I had some vanilla yogurt I wanted to use up and found this by the ingredient search. Do NOT let the newness of the post fool you. These were the best scones ever. I try to follow the recipe as posted the first time around and would have done so this time, however, I accidentally put the milk in with the eggs and yogurt. Ooops. Of course it created a stickier dough so I had to add a bit of flour. But the result was moist, chewy delicious scones!
