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.

How to Make Vanilla Yogurt Scones

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.
