You can also add dried fruit, chocolate chips or nuts or anything else you'd like to these tender scones. I added chocolate chips to half of them and left the other half plain.

Ingredients

2 c
sifted all purpose flour
1/4 c
plus 1 tablespoon sugar
1 tsp
baking powder
1/4 tsp
salt
5 Tbsp
cold unsalted butter, cubed
1
egg
3/4 c
lowfat vanilla yogurt
1 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2
Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray or line with parchment paper.
3
In a medium bowl, sift the flour. Re-measure it (it will end up being more than you needed once sifted) and measure 2 cups into a large bowl.
4
To the flour, add 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt; Whisk to combine.
5
Add butter cubes and mix with fingers just until coarse crumbs form.
6
Add egg, yogurt and vanilla; Mix gently with a spoon just until combined. Don't overmix.
7
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Pat down with floured hands gently to form a circle 1 inch thick.
8
Either cut into 8 wedges with a sharp knife or cut into 8-10 small circles. Place onto prepared pan.
9
To seal the surface, lightly brush with milk and sprinkle with the 1 Tablespoon reserved sugar for a nice finish.
10
Bake 15 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.
11
Serve warm either plain or with butter and honey or preserves; or cool on rack and store in an airtight container once cool.
