This has been longtime favorite "special breakfast" item in our family. They are pretty quick to make and are still delicious the day after…if they last that long! Note there is no egg in this recipe and the yogurt can be substituted with almond milk too.
Quickly chop the cold butter into small pieces and rub into the dry mixture by hand or pastry blender.
Make a well in the mixture and pour in the yogurt. Quickly mix with a fork until a ball forms. Don't over mix. At this point turn out the mixture on to a floured board and knead 4 or 5 times. Press into a ball and slice it crosswise into 4 pieces. Pat each into a 1 inch thick circle.
Now cut each circle crosswise like a pie into 4 wedges. In all you should have 16 wedges (scones).
Place the scones onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake them in a preheated 400 degree oven for 12 - 15 minutes.
