Occassionally I cater in the breakfast for our monthly company call at work.  Traditionally I do breakfast burritos, bacon-wrapped smokies and a baked good of some sort, and fruit.  This time, I wasn't sure what baked good to do, so I requested the opinion of a co-worker who asked for Scones.

I'm guessing they were good since they were all gone! :D

Scones with Variety

3 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 Tablespoons cold butter
1 cup (8oz) vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup milk

Mix ins for Variety
  • Cherry Chocolate Chip
    • 1 1/2 cup dried cherries
    • 2/3 cup mini chocolate or vanilla chips
  • Orange Cranberry Chip
    • 1 Tablespoon orange extract or orange juice concentrate
    • 2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
    • 1 1/2 cup cranberries
  • Blueberry
    • 2 cups fresh, frozen or dried blueberries
  • In standing mixer combine dry ingredients.  Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Combine the wet ingredients (milk, yogurt and any extracts) and mix until just moist
  • Grease baking sheet and pat the dough into a 8'' circle.  Cut into wedges and seperate.  Brush with milk to brown.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until golden brown.
Instead of the circle and pie-shape, I also will double the recipe and press it into a bar pan or large cookie sheet and cut into smaller square pieces to serve more people.
