Amazing, light scones

The batter for this scone is even more delicious than the scone itself, so it is going to be hard not to nibble away the batter before even getting to the scone. It is very light and fluffy, to the point where it almost seems like it might not actually be a scone, but might be in a different category. I would recommend baking individual scones rather than doing the big one cut into triangles as the batter was moist enough that it didn't cut prior to baking. And I did brush the yogurt on top, which left a few white lumps on top that were safe and edible but looked suspicious. I don't know if it would turn out as well without the yogurt, though.

easy, delicious

I whipped this up really fast and replaced raisins with dried cherries and orange with lemon. They turned out pretty good but I think since I used greek yogurt they were not as fluffy as they could have been. I will be trying these out again for sure.

I suggest eating them warm with fresh berry jam. Delicious!

These were delicious and incredibly easy to make. I brought these over to a friend's house and 5 people asked me for the recipe. I preferred the scones warm. However, they stayed fresh for a couple of days.
