Gimme Some Sugar-Brown Sugar Scones

20131002-223301.jpg

Several years ago I attended a really fancy bridal shower tea. There I was introduced to beautiful little scones, with sides of lemon curd and sweet butter and freshly made jam. Sometimes I get a craving for a little bite or two of those biscuit-like delights.
I like to create my own lighter versions, using less butter and more natural fat, like yogurt, or add healthy stuff like chia seeds. Today I decided on a scrumptious brown sugar scone. And this basic recipe I’ve created used only 4 main ingredients.

 

Super Fluffy Brown Sugar Scones
2 cups self rising flour, plus additional for kneading
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup, plus 1 Tb milk
cooking spray
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Make a well in the center and add the yogurt and 1/2 cup milk. Carefully incorporate the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just moistened.
Allow dough to rest 5 minutes. This is what makes them fluffy.
Sprinkle additional flour-about 1/4 cup onto bread board. Knead dough, turning one-quarter turns, about 5-6 times.
Pat dough into an 8 inch diameter circle about 1 inch thick.
Transfer to a baking sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
Cut dough into 8 wedges and separate slightly.
Brush tops of scones with one tablespoon of milk.
Bake for 30 minutes, until lightly golden.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Serves 8. Prep 10 min. Bake 30 min.
Grab a hot cup of coffee or sweet black tea and dig in! These are very kid friendly as all my boys chowed these down, enjoying dipping them in the brown sugar I left for the photo.
