Cherry Orange Scones

As promised, I am sharing the scone recipe I tried today! I found the recipe on the Fage yogurt website, and it was a total hit!

“THIS IS THE BEST SCONE I’VE EVER HAD….PERFECT!” – Sergei (There you have it folks, this recipe is better than the boxed and store bought scones we’ve tried!)

Instead of using cranberries I used dried cherries and golden raisins. On the next batch I added a cup of oats and made oatmeal raisin scones. The combinations are endless so feel free to make your own and share what you tried!

Cherry Orange Yogurt Scones

Recipe adapted from: fage.com

2 cups of flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp kosher salt
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1 cup FAGE Total Classic
1 egg
¼ cup butter, melted*
2 tsp orange zest
½ cup dried cherries

Preheat oven to 400F. Combine first four ingredients in one bowl (dry), and the sugar, yogurt, egg, butter, and zest in a separate bowl (wet). Add the wet mixture to the dry and fold in the dried cherries. Make a circular shape with the dough and cut into 8 pieces. Bake scones with at least an inch of space between them for ~15 minutes.

*Can be substituted with Earth Balance
