Strawberry Scones

Someone at work brought in a whole bag of strawberries. I'm trying to branch out and make new things.  I was looking around at strawberry options and came across this recipe.  As luck would have it I just bought a container of Greek yogurt.

Strawberry Scones:
(adapted from Chobani Yogurt)

2 cups all-purpose flour, plus 1-2 tsp for flouring work surface
1/4 cups sugar plus 1 tablespoon for sprinkling on top
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted cold butter, cut into 1/4-inch cubes
1 cup chopped strawberries
3/4 cup Greek yogurt


Preheat oven to 425˚F. Stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a bowl. Add butter, using hands or fork, work until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in strawberries, and then Greek yogurt to hold dough together. Do not overmix.

Turn dough onto floured surface and with floured hands, knead 2 to 3 times. Gently press dough into rectangle, about 1½-inches thick. Fold rectangle into thirds, like a letter. Press dough into 9-inch round.  Cut into 8 wedges.

Arrange wedges on a parchment-paper-covered cookie sheet. Sprinkle each wedge with a little sugar. Bake until golden, about 12 to 15 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool.
