This recipe was shared with me in 2008, by a recently retired spouse of the minister living at the Parsonage. He's from Great Britain and he loves to bake these scones. They are healthy because they don't have the fat usually contained in scones, and he uses part whole wheat and non-fat yogurt, and corn or safflower oil. They are best kept frozen and then reheated quickly in a microwave when desired.
