Sue Gronholz's Apple Cheddar Mini-Scones

Ingredients
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup cold butter
  • 1 egg
  • ¾ cup (6 oz) vanilla yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp. 2 % milk, divided
  • 1/3 cup shredded peeled apple
  • 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp. minced fresh sage
  • 1 Tbsp. sugar


Preheat oven to 425°.  In a large bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda.  Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 


In another bowl, whisk egg, yogurt and 2 Tbsp. milk; stir into crumb mixture just until moistened.  Stir in apple, cheese and sage.

Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead gently 10 times.  Divide dough in half; pat each portion into a 6-in. circle.  Cut each circle into eight wedges; cut each wedge into half.

Transfer to parchment paper-lined baking sheets.  Brush tops with remaining milk; sprinkle with sugar.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Serve warm.


For Regular-Size Scones:  Do not cut wedges in half.  Bake as directed, increasing baking time to 12-14 minutes. Makes 16.
