grandma's scones

These are so easy & fun to make with kiddos! The girls especially love getting to roll out their own treats, and even cutting them into pie pieces. Hope you enjoy this recipe passed on from the grandma of a friend. :)

1 cup plain yogurt
1 tsp baking soda
4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup butter, softened
1 egg

In a small bowl, mix the yogurt & baking soda well. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 350F. In a large bowl combine all the dry ingredients and mix well. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Finally stir in the yogurt & egg until moistened. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead well. Divide dough into smaller balls - and pat each into a flat round, about 3/4 inches thick. Cut into 4-6 pieces. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Yum!
