Yogurt + berries + scones =

My earliest memories of scones are from when my sister and cousin worked at the State Fair. They weren't old enough to drive, so my mom also had to work at the State Fair. What a mom! They all worked at different food places, one of them being a scone hut. Every night they brought home leftover scones. They dragged in after midnight and all I cared about were the scones in the paper wrappers. So delicious! Who cares if they had to put up with minimum wage, hot temperatures, and tacky uniforms.... the scones rocked.

I was originally going to make these scones: Maple Blackberry Scones. I was recently linked on this blog, the Queen of Tarts from the Oregon Fruit Products. It's a great site! They feature local recipes and linked my post about making meatballs with the girls. There is a pictures of Mandy with snot running down her face. Classy. My reputation is ruined. Or maybe I never had a reputation as a mother who required strict hygiene while baking.

The Maple Blackberry Scones looked delicious, but I ended up making these: Yogurt Scones. I had precisely 1/2 cup of yogurt that was going bad and wondered if there was a recipe out there that used yogurt as the liquid binder in scones. Low and behold I found one!

Try it, the scones were delicious!

I absolutely love scones. I made some earlier this week to enter in to our county fair. They were cranberry orange scones. Unfortunately I missed the drop of date and they did not get into the fair, but I can't complain too much because it just means we got to eat them.

Yay! I'm so glad you enjoyed the recipe.

I totally remember those scones from the fair, too!
