These were the perfect consistency and tasted great with a teeny bit of honey. Here's the recipe from Rather Be Baking. Enjoy!

Makes 12 scones.

Ingredients:

- 2 cups all-purpose flour

- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

- 1/3 cup sugar

- 1 teaspoon salt

- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

- 6 tablespoons cold butter or margarine, cut up

- 1 large egg

- 1/2 cup yogurt (I used honey greek yogurt)

- 1/3 cup blueberries*

- 1/3 cup blackberries*

- 1/3 cup cranberries*

*Frozen berries are perfectly fine!

- 2 tablespoons milk

- 2 tablespoons sugar

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper

In a bowl of a food processor, combine flour, baking powder, 1/3 cup sugar, salt, and nutmeg, and pulse together

Add butter and pulse until dough is the consistency of small peas. Pour mixture into a large bowl.

In a small bowl, combine yogurt and egg and whisk until thoroughly mixed. Make a well in the center of the dry mixture and pour in yogurt/egg mixture. Add berries and stir gently until just combined.

With a large spoon, scoop out 12 lumps of dough onto the cookie sheets, spread 2 inches apart. With floured fingers, gently shape dough into wedges. Brush with milk and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons sugar.

Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and a cake tester is inserted in the middle and comes out clean. Let cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
