Strawberries & Cream Scones

DSC_0289

As I peered into the fridge this morning all I could look at was the multiple containers of vanilla yogurt staring back at me. I’m a simple breakfast eater but today the yogurt was not making the cut.  Instead, I decided to spring for a new recipe which included the yogurt still sitting in my fridge: Strawberries & Cream scones. Today, as always, I felt like being adventurous in the kitchen and attempted making scones for my very first time! The yogurt paired with the strawberries made it just the right amount of sweet.
