  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 5 tablespoon Sugar
  • Zest of one Lemon
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter cold and cut into cubes
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • ½ cup Greek Yogurt plain or Vanilla
  • ½ cup Salted Pistachio‘s
  • ½ cup Dried Cranberries
  • ½ cup White Chocolate Chips


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a food processor add the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, and lemon zest, pulse to blend.
  • Add the cubes of butter and pulse until the butter has been cut into the mixture, it should like coarse grains of sand.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, cream, and vanilla until combined.
  • Add to the flour mixture and mix with a spoon until the mixture just starts to come together. Do not overmix.
  • Add the cranberries, white chocolate chips and pistachio’s and gently fold together, Mix just enough to incorporate.
  • Form the mixture into a ball and place on the parchment paper.
  • Use your hands to form the dough into a large circle and flatten about one inch thick.
  • Cut the scones into 8 pieces and separate on your baking sheet*
  • Brush the finished scones with a little cream or milk to get good color as they bake
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until a deep golden brown in color. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.


* by separating the scones into individual portions you get more crunchy exterior, which is the best part of the scone.
