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

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!
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!
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!
I made these just over 12 hours ago and my daughter and I ate them all up! I already had all of these ingredients on hand, which was really nice. The dough was super sticky and therefore somewhat unpleasant to knead. We ran out of white sugar so I had to sprinkle some brown sugar on top instead, but they did come out really nice! I've never had a scone quite like it. They were SUPER chewy. I happen to like that in a carbohydrate, but it might not be for everyone. I also noticed the vanilla flavor from the yogurt was really pronounced (I used Brown Cow cream-top yogurt). The only reason I wouldn't give five stars is that the dough was hard to work with and the texture was so unusual (but tasty!).
Mmm! So good! The only thing I changed was the flavor of yogurt used (Honey) everything else I made as directed, and they turned out lovely! Thanks for the delicious 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.
Mine were more like hockey pucks. Won't make these again
