Recipe by Bryan the baker
"A variation on traditional English sour cream scones. A good tip is to use a good quality yogurt with plenty of fruit bits in it."

1 3/4 cups
whole milk, or as needed
I really like this scone recipe (and I have tried quite a few scone recipes). I have used strawberry yogurt and raspberry yogurt, and my family has decided they like the raspberry better. Some others have mentioned dryness. What I do is start with a cup and 1/4 of flour, then add the yogurt and I add the milk to the mix, also. If I need more flour, I add just a little until there is a workable dough. Scones shouldn't be overworked, though, so I pat the dough instead of kneading it, then use a biscuit cutter to make my shapes. Thanks for the great recipe! PS I do reduce bkg pdwr to 2 tsps., four seems a little much!
I made these Scones tonight and they were not good at all. I needed a recipe that used Strawberry yogurt, since I had a lot leftover, so I chose this one. I read the reviews before making them so I checked the batter prior to baking them. I made the Scones by the recipe and tasted the batter it was bland and not sweet. I then added 4 Fresh Strawberries and 2 extra Tbsps of Sugar then crossed my fingers. The additions made no difference at all the Scones turned out like yogurt flavored muffins with no sweetness or flavor. I won't be making this again!
I usually won't make anything that does not have a 5-star rating, much less something that hasn't even been rated yet, but I decided to try these because they looked interesting. These scones are good, with a great scone texture. I was all out of butter, so I used 1/8 cup of I Can't Believe it's not Butter and 1/8 cup of Crisco. I also only had the thick and creamy Yoplait yogurt. None of this seemed to have a bad effect. I was hoping for a more strawberry tasting scone, but it could have been the yogurt. Also, the dough was really strange and difficult to deal with and I only got 11 biscuits with the dough 1/2 inch thick.
Scones are usually served with jam and fresh cream, the fact that some people say that they are bland means that they didn't serve them the correct way!!! With Strawberry scones, try using strawberry jam and you will see that it all blends in together.....
The texture was great but they ended up really bland-even after I sprinkled sugar on the tops. I followed the suggestions and added berries to the dough, but even that didn't help out with the sweetness enough. Next time I'll add 1/3 cup of sugar to the mix and see how they turn out.
I really liked these... you could only taste the strawberry yogurt slightly- it wasn't too overpowering but it was definitely there. Not amazing good still very good and very simple (great if you didn't have any eggs like me!)
I liked the recipe. It was one of the best I have made. My husband likes things on the sweeter side so I made a glaze with powdered sugar the strawberry yogurt and vanilla, butter and a little strawberry jam to jazz up the strawberry flavor. I am quite pleased with this recipe and will make it again with other flavors.
Pretty good, actually! I used one 6 oz container of Archer Farms fat-free, sugar free Strawberry Cheesecake yogurt and no milk; the dough was a bit dry but very workable. Two-inch, heart-shaped scones baked up nicely, not sweet, but true scones aren't! No strawberry flavour, but that was probably due to the yogurt, not the recipe. I also used Crisco in place of butter; the scones weren't light and fluffy like others I've tried, but again, I'm blaming the yogurt or possibly over-kneading. The recipe is a BREEZE so I'll be trying it again!
