Ingredients

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • Zest of 1 lemon (2 tsp)
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, cold
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup low fat plain Greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup 1% milk
  • ½ cup Chukar® Sour Cherry Preserves or Chukar® Sweet Cherry Preserves
  • 1 tsp milk
  • 1 tsp brown sugar
  • Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F (180°C).
  • Mix the flour, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and lemon zest in a large bowl.
  • Cut the butter into small chunks, add it to the dry ingredients, and cut it in with a pastry blender (or rub it in with your fingers until it resembles fine breadcrumbs).
  • Whisk together the egg, yogurt, and milk. Stir into the dry mixture until a dough forms.
  • Gently fold in Chukar® Sour Cherry Preserves or Chukar® Sweet Cherry Preserves.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and briefly knead. If the dough is too wet, add a little extra flour while kneading. Pat the dough into a flat disk about 2 inches thick. Cut into wedges.
  • Transfer the dough to a parchment-lined or lightly greased baking sheet. If you want crispier scones, separate the wedges a little. If you prefer them soft, leave them touching one another. Brush the tops of the scones with 1 tsp milk. Sprinkle with 1 tsp brown sugar.
  • Bake in the oven for 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack before serving.
