Snow Scones


Ingredients:

3/4 Cup Strawberry Greek Yogurt

2 Cup All-purpose flour plus extra for dusting work surface

1/3 Cup Sugar plus 2 T for sprinkling (mildly sweet, increase to ½ Cup if you like it sweet)

2 Tsp Baking powder

½ Tsp Baking soda

¼ Tsp Salt

4 Tbsp Cold unsalted butter cut into ¼-inch cubes

½ Tsp Lemon Zest

1 Cup Fresh strawberries, chopped

Directions

Preheat oven to 425°F.

In a large bowl whisk together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Add butter and using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse cornmeal.

Stir in strawberries, lemon zest and then gently incorporate yogurt, and knead it just enough to make it into a dough ball. Do not over mix.

Turn dough onto a heavily floured work surface. Pat it into 1 inch thick circle. Cut into 8 wedges.

Arrange wedges on parchment paper-lined baking sheet and sprinkle tops of scones with remaining 2 T sugar.

Bake until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before serving.
