Because cheese and sage go so well with apples, I decided to put them all in scones. These mini treats make a fall weekend brunch, tailgate or party even more fun. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 3 tablespoons 2% milk, divided
  • 1/3 cup shredded peeled apple
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 1 tablespoon sugar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. In another bowl, whisk egg, yogurt and 2 tablespoons milk; stir into crumb mixture until just moistened. Stir in apple, cheese and sage.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10 times. Divide dough in half; pat each portion into a 6-in. circle. Cut each circle into 8 wedges; cut each wedge in half.
  3. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Brush tops with remaining milk; sprinkle with sugar. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
For regular-size scones: Do not cut wedges in half. Bake as directed, increasing baking time to 12-14 minutes. Makes: 16 regular scones.
