Recipe by Paula T
"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

sifted all-purpose flour
unsalted butter, cubed
reduced-fat vanilla yogurt
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!
Mine were more like hockey pucks. Won't make these again
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!
Sorry... Hit send before review was done. I was excited about a yogurt based scone recipe, to save some calories from the traditional all-butter base. I used baking powder (not soda), and next time will reduce to 3/4 tsp as the dough was plenty fluffy. I also added 1/4 cup Craisins. Without all the butter, the texture is not as crumbly as a traditional scone, and mine really were quite dry after cooling. Might have been the addition of the Craisins, so I will add a full cup of yogurt next time to improve the moisture content when using dried fruit. Worth tweaking, to arrive at a good lower calorie scone recipe. Thanks to Paula for putting the recipe out here...I love scones, and I really want a good lower calorie version!
These are great! I made them as directed, except I used Honey Greek yogurt, and didn't brush any milk on the tops, as I am plum out of that, but anyway, they turned out light and fluffy, a real treat for the kids and me on a fall afternoon! Thanks for the delicious and quick recipe!
Made these for my quilt club that visited over the weekend. I usually don't lik etrying something new and giving it out when I haven't even tasted it yet, but I did that with these and they were a big hit. I even had to give someone my copy of the recipe and had to print myself a new copy. Followed the recipe exact, my only issue was the dough being realy, realy sticky. Had to add a bit of extra flour just to be able to kneed. I also used sanding sugar on top instead of just regular whit sugar.
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.
