Lemon Nutmeg Scones

by on October 3, 2012

Today it’s my turn to post a favorite recipe. These scones are yummy!

Lemon Nutmeg Scones

  • 1 ¾ cups flour
  • ¼ cups cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • 6 tbsp. margarine
  • 8-oz. carton lemon yogurt
  • 1 tsp. lemon peel
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 ½ tsp. sugar
  • 1/8 tsp. nutmeg
  • 3 oz. package cream cheese, softened

Combine first four ingredients, blending well. Cut in margarine with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbles.

Combine ½ cup yogurt, lemon peel, raisins, and eggs; add to dry ingredients and stir until just moistened.

On a greased cookie sheet, press dough into a 9-inch circle, ¾ inch thick.

Combine sugar and 1/8 tsp nutmeg and sprinkle evenly over dough.

Using a knife or dough scraper coated in Pam cooking or baking spray, cut dough into 12 wedges and slide them apart so the wedges are 1 inch from each other.

Bake at 450 degrees for 7 to 10 minutes.

Combine remaining yogurt with cream cheese and serve with warm scones.
