Orange Yogurt Scones Recipe

"My mother handed down this recipe to me when I moved out of the house," recalls Hollye Chapman of Corvallis, Oregon. "It produces a very light scone that tastes great with orange marmalade, lemon curd or most kinds of jam. Use any flavor fruit yogurt if you don't have orange," she adds.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons cold butter
  • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) orange yogurt
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated orange peel


  • 1. In a bowl, combine the flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; cut in butter until crumbly. In another bowl, whisk the yogurt, orange juice and peel; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Turn onto a floured surface; knead 10 times.

"Very easy to make. I doubled the recipe and I used orange cream yogurt and freshly squeezed orange juice from the orange from which I grated the peel. I did have to add a little more OJ than called for as the mixture was too dry without it. I sprinkled coarse sugar on top before baking. I also froze them to have at another time. I will definitely be making these again!"

"I changed this recipe into something completely different. I wanted to use up a container of strawberry yogurt, so I used that instead. I also added a mashed banana. I did not use orange juice, but I used milk. Then I glazed them with an icing I made with strawberry preserve. My coworkers loved them! Maybe next time I will try orange scones."
