Orange Yogurt Scones

Ann Holmberg Coeur d'Alene Idaho

As owner of the Country Ranch Bed and Breakfast, Ann Holmberg continually searches for delicious breakfast breads for her health-conscious guests. She modernized this "handed-down" recipe with citrus-flavor yogurt, and uses fresh orange juice and grated orange peel to emphasize the fruit flavor.

Prep and cook time: About 35 minutes

Makes: 8 servings

2 cups all-purpose flour 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar 2 tablespoons baking powder 1/4 teaspoon each baking soda and salt 3 tablespoons cold butter or margarine 1 carton (6 oz., about 2/3 cup) orange- or lemon-flavor yogurt 2 teaspoons grated orange peel 1/4 cup orange juice

1. In a bowl or food processor, mix or whirl together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut in or whirl in butter until mixture forms fine crumbs. Mix yogurt, peel, and juice; add to flour mixture and stir just until evenly moistened.

2. Mound dough on an oiled 12- by 15-inch baking sheet. With well-floured hands, pat mound into an even 9-inch round. With a floured knife, cut through dough to make 8 wedges; leave in place on pan. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.

3. Bake in a 375 [degrees] oven until scones are golden brown, about 25 minutes. Serve hot, or slide onto a rack and let cool until warm. Cut into wedges.
