  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 sweet onion, halved and thinly sliced
  • DOUGH:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 cup plain yogurt


  1. In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, melt butter. Stir in brown sugar until blended; add onion. Cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until onion is golden brown, stirring frequently. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flours, brown sugar, baking powder, sage, salt and baking soda. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Combine egg and yogurt; stir into crumb mixture just until combined (dough will be sticky). Stir in a third of the onion mixture.
  3. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls 2 in. apart onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Gently press remaining onion mixture onto dough. Bake at 425° for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
