2 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

3 tablespoons sugar

1 stick cold unsalted butter, cut into 1 tablespoon pats

½ cup plain yogurt (heaping)

1 large egg, lightly beaten

¼ cup sugar for sprinkling on top

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

In a medium mixing bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients (first 5 ingredients). Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut in the butter until cut into small or pea-sized pieces. Make a well in the center and pour in the yogurt and egg. Mix until just combined well.

Knead dough gently on a lightly-floured surface, then pat into a ½ -inch to 1-inch thick circle. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out scones and place on a baking sheet. Reform leftover dough into a disk and cut out more until all the dough is used. Sprinkle the tops with sugar. Bake for about 12 minutes until golden.
