    In small bowl, beat yogurt, milk and 1 egg with whisk. Add to flour mixture; stir gently until just combined. Place dough on work surface sprinkled with flour; knead a few times to bring dough together. Gently pat dough out into a round; cut into 8 wedges using sharp knife. Transfer wedges to cookie sheet. Brush tops of wedges with egg wash; sprinkle generously with coarse sugar. Place in freezer for several hours--until frozen solid--before transferring to freezer bag and stashing back in freezer until ready to bake.

Expert Tips

  • You can use any flavor of Yoplait® Greek yogurt you like, switching up the mix-ins to pair with your favorite flavors.
  • Only knead the dough enough to bring the dough together. The less you handle it, the more tender your scones will be.
