Strawberry-Yogurt Scones

Strawberry-Yogurt Scones

2 cups flour
3 Tbsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
4 Tbsp butter, cold, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
3/4 cup chopped strawberries
3/4 cup plain yogurt

Frosting:
2 Tbsp half and half
confectioner’s sugar

1. Preheat oven to 200c.
2. Stir together dry ingredients. With a pastry cutter or two knives, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in strawberries. Stir in enough yogurt to be able to form dough into a ball (up to 3/4 cup).
3. Turn dough onto floured surface and with floured hands, knead a few times. Press dough into a rectangle, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Fold rectangle into thirds. Press dough into 9-inch round. Cut into 8 equal triangles.
4. Place scones into scone pan or on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes.
5. Whisk sugar into half and half, adding more sugar until desired consistency is reached.
