Cherry Chip Scones
Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min.
Just made and per my husband "a keeper." I used triple cream vanilla bean yogurt plus added one-quarter teaspoon salt (and yes, I used salted butter). I patted dough out onto lightly greased parchment paper, formed into 9" circle, cut into eights, did a little "reforming" after cutting d/t chunky fruit and chocolate, slid formed scones onto baking sheet and baked on the parchment. This method, for me, made for less handling of dough and the texture perfect. Despite the sugar in the ingredients, we didn't think the scones too sweet and are full of flavor. These are definitely worth making.
I have made this recipe several times, exactly as written. Everyone in the family loves these!!! Definitely a keeper.
Absolutely delicious! I did make some changes though. I used 1. 1/3c sugar. My family thought they were still too sweet so next time I'll use 1/4c and/or cut back on the chips; 2. margarine to cut down on saturated fat; 3. non-fat plain yogurt and added some vanilla extract; 4. 1c dried fruit (all I had); and 5. buttermilk instead of whole (all I had). They were moist inside with a nice crust on the outside. Thanks for sharing! It's a keeper!
These were delicious! I love the flavor combination in these - so good! These were fairly easy to make and made for an excellent breakfast offering. I really enjoyed the coarse sugar on top and would always add this.
Wonderful recipe! Didn't have dried cherries so substituted coarsely chopped maraschino cherries, drained and patted dry. Also used semi sweet chips as indicated in the recipe variations. Will definitely make these again. This is a very versatile recipe since you can vary the yogurt, dried fruit and chips to suit your tastes. Fluffy and buttery, we loved these scones! Easy to make too!
Excellent recipe! I did half the sugar though. Made some Devonshire Cream to go along with them. This recipe is a keeper.

I have made these often. Love how quick and easy ...and very delicious. Some changes I have tried, not because the original isn't wonderful but because I just wanted to experiment, used cherry vanilla yogurt and substituted sliced almonds for the chips. Make this recipe and you won't be disappointed.
I have made these quite a few times and get requests for more everytime. This past time I had purchased a baking stone and baked them on it. Wow! THEY WERE EVEN BETTER.
This is fantastic. I have also used frozen raspberries to this when I didnt have the dried cherries. Worked out great.
