Strawberry Scones (makes 8 scones)
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 large egg
1/4 plain yoghurt
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
8 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
1 generous cup of diced fresh strawberries
flour for dusting
sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 425F. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, combine the egg, yoghurt, milk and vanilla. Cut the butter into the flour mixture, until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the strawberries to the flour mixture, tossing gently to coat. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until just combined.
Pour the dough out onto a well floured surface and knead the dough until the dough comes together.
Form the dough into an 8” round. Sprinkle with additional sugar and slice the round into 8 wedges. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake the scones in the preheated oven until the scones are lightly browned, approximately 12-15 minutes. Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes before serving. These scones are best served warm.
