  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F. Mix the flour, sugar, baking powder and baking soda in the bowl of a mixer. Add the butter and mix until it resembles coarse cornmeal. Add the yogurt and cranberries and mix gently to create dough. (If using a Fruit on the Bottom flavor, mix before incorporating.)
  • Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board and divide in half. Pat each dough half into a circle approximately 6 to 7 inches in diameter. Cut each circle into eighths, and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Bake the scones for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool and serve as desired.
