Scones are similar to biscuits, but these have a wet, sticky dough. Serve fresh from the oven with hot tea.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup diced strawberries
2/3 cup strawberry fat-free yogurt
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons sugar
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 400°.
Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Combine strawberries, yogurt, butter, rind, and egg white; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 4 times with floured hands. Pat into an 8-inch circle on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Cut into 12 wedges, cutting into but not through dough; sprinkle with 2 teaspoons sugar. Bake at 400° for 20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Great scones! Love the double strawberry flavor from the fresh strawberries and the yogurt. A nice healthful feel from the inclusion of whole wheat flour. Spectacular crunch from the sugar on top, and perfect with a cup of chai tea.
These scones are our go-to recipe once strawberry season kicks in. We double the amount of strawberries & deal with the resulting messy dough. These are best hot out of the oven, with a generous dallop of homemade strawberry jam! Yum.
