Fitknitchick’s ‘Fruits-of-our-labors’ Whole Wheat Scones

1/2 cup plain yogurt (I used 0% fat Greek)
1 egg
1 tsp real vanilla extract
2 cups whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter, cold and cubed
1 Tbsp sugar
1 cup blueberries (or small berry of your choice)

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
2. Whisk yogurt, egg and vanilla together in a small bowl.
3. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
4. Using pastry blender (or two knives), cut butter into flour until mixture resembles coarse peas.
5. Add liquid ingredients and stir with wooden spoon until batter comes together.
6. Toss in sugar and berries and gently mix to combine.
7. With lightly floured hands, pat dough into a ball and knead on floured surface      10-12 times. Add a bit more flour if dough seems too sticky.
8. With hands, pat dough into a circle, about 1 inch thick.
9. Cut into 8 wedges. Place wedges on parchment lined cookie sheet.
10. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden.
11. Cool (or not!) and eat.
