    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.

    To bake frozen scones, heat oven to 425°F. Line cookie sheet with cooking parchment paper, and place as many scones as you’d like to bake onto cookie sheet. Bake frozen scones 18 to 20 minutes or until brown. Cool slightly before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can use any flavor of Yoplait® Greek yogurt you like, switching up the mix-ins to pair with your favorite flavors.
  • tip 2
    Only knead the dough enough to bring the dough together. The less you handle it, the more tender your scones will be.
