Lemon Berry Scones

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 cups sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3/4 cups full fat yogurt
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup frozen berries
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 tbs butter, cold and cubed

Glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add small cubes of very cold butter and combine with a pastry cutter or your fingers until the mixture comes together but there are still very small chunks of butter.
  2. Whisk together yogurt, the egg yolk, lemon juice, and vanilla extract together in a small bowl. Pour over the flour mixture, add the berries, then mix together.
  3. Pour onto a clean counter and work dough into an 8-in circle. Cut into 6-8 equal triangles. To make smaller scones, make 2 discs. Dough should be sticky but still hold it’s shape. If it’s too sticky, add a little more flour, about 1 Tablespoon at a time.
  4. Place scones on a lined baking sheet, about 2/3 inches apart and refrigerate for 20 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Preheat oven to 400°F .
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until lightly brown and golden brown around the edges.
  7. Remove from the oven and cool completely before adding the glaze.
  8. To make the glaze, mix together lemon juice and powdered sugar until the glaze is smooth. Drizzle over scones and enjoy.
