cup White Flour Unbleached
2 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
6 tablespoons Cold Butter
2 tablespoons Packed Brown Sugar
cup Nonfat Yogurt *Note
These scones are unusually light and fluffy.
Unlike most recipes for scone, this one doesn't require any rolling or cutting of the dough. In fact, the "dough" is more of a batter, and can be dropped - like cookies - directly onto the baking sheet. Because of this great shortcut, the recipe can be completely assembled in just 15 minutes. So pull this one out if you have guests coming for tea on short notice.
*NOTE: Original recipe used firm yogurt
**NOTE: Original recipe used 2 regular eggs
Beat the yogurt together with 1 egg. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients, and add the yogurt mixture along with the dried fruit. Mix as minimally as possible, with swift, decisive strokes, until well blended. Drop by rounded quarter-cup measures onto the lightly greased sheet. Beat the remaining egg. Brush the tops with beaten egg (the softness of the batter might require you to pat, rather than brush, it on).
