  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like fine crumbs. Stir in yogurt, cherries and chocolate chips (dough will seem dry and crumbly).
  • 3
    On lightly floured surface, shape dough into a ball. Knead dough lightly 10 times. Divide dough in half. On cookie sheet, pat each half of dough into 6-inch circle. Cut each circle into 6 wedges, using sharp knife, but do not separate wedges. Sprinkle with sugar.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Carefully separate wedges. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

You can use 1 (6-oz) container of Yoplait® Original 99% Fat Free French vanilla yogurt instead of the yogurt in the recipe if you like.

Count to 10! Overkneading the dough will make your scones tough.
