Yogurt Scones With Jalapeno and CheesePosted: January 31, 2011
Yogurt, yogurt everywhere . . . now that I know how easy it is to make yogurt at home, I’m trying to find ways to use it in addition to parfaits and smoothies. Here’s a great recipe for yogurt scones! This recipe can be changed around by subtracting the jalapeno, cheese, and black pepper and adding 1/4 cup of sugar and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Be creative and come up with your own combo of sweet or savory yogurt scones!
One note about the difference between American biscuits and Scottish scones; they are usually made from similar recipes, although scones are generally sweeter. An exception would be the Utah scone which is more like Indian fry bread. I just happen to like the name “scone” and so that’s what I’m calling this biscuit like quick bread. And that’s all I have to say about that.
Yogurt Scones With Jalapeno and Cheese
2 cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 Tablespoon minced fresh jalapeno
1 1/4 cup plain yogurt
Mix together all ingredients in the order they are listed. Form into a ball and press into a 9″ pie plate. Bake for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. Wasn’t that easy?
