Dried Cherry Scones Recipe

Experimenting with recipes is one of those things that keeps me out of trouble ;-) I came across a recipe for Dried Cherry Scones and tried it the regular way then decided to experiment and make it even lower in calories and fat...

And it was still awesome.

Try this one:

Dried Cherry Scones

2 3/4 cups low-fat baking mix (like Bisquick)
1/4 cup Splenda
1/2 cup dried cherries
1/2 teaspoon Splenda
8 ounces cherry low-fat or fat free yogurt (I used Very Cherry Fat Free Yoplait)
1 tablespoon sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix cherries with 1/2 teaspoon Splenda. Let sit while you mix the Bisquick with the 1/4 cup Splenda. I mix it with a fork to get all the clumps out. Stir in cherries, add yogurt and mix until moistened. Turn out onto a floured (don't use Bisquick for this part, use flour) breadboard and knead four or five times by hand.

Spray Pam onto a cookie sheet. Spread dough out into a 9-inch circle on cookie sheet. Cut into 10 or 12 slices--without cutting all the way through the dough--just basically scoring it. Sprinkle with sugar and then bake for 16 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned.

Yummy for breakfast
