"My mother handed down this recipe to me when I moved out of the house," recalls Hollye Chapman of Corvallis, Oregon. "It produces a very light scone that tastes great with orange marmalade, lemon curd or most kinds of jam. Use any flavor fruit yogurt if you don't have orange," she adds.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup plus 2 teaspoons sugar, divided
