Recipe Ingredients for Chocolate Cherry Scones

2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup firm Smart Balance
6 ounces (1 container) yogurt, lite- cherry vanilla
1/2 cup dried cherry
1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Recipe Directions for Chocolate Cherry Scones

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray cookie sheet with Pam or another non-stick cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in Smart Balance, using a pastry blender or pulling 2 butter 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). 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 circles. Cut each circle into 6 wedges, using a sharp knife, but do NOT separate wedges. Bake 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack. Carefully separate wedges; let cool 15 minutes. Serve warm. Optional- lightly sprinkle cocoa powder over scones.
