The last time I attempted this savoury bite was back in 2006. My photo was horrible and the narrative was … equally inadequate.
I’m confident, or more like assuring myself, that with 8 years of cooking and photo-taking experience under my belt, I ought to be able to show you something more interesting than that.
Back in 2006, I was still pretty much entrenched in the sweet-tooth camp whereas Hubby was, and still is, from the savoury camp. But somehow, for some unknown reasons, things began changing for me over the years. I am fussy about cakes, choosy with chocolates, ambivalent about tarts and other sweet desserts. On the whole, I had cut down on a lot of sugary stuff from my diet and when I do take them, they are definitely those worthy of the calories they come with.
Scones are just about my favourite thing in the whole. They are almost effortless to make, highly accommodating to all your whim and fancy and they bake real fast. Best of all, they can’t go too wrong with scones even if you have no kitchen skills.
These were so easy to throw together and I must admit that I did not even follow any particular recipe. I just go with the basic ratio and I was turning the dough ready for cutting.
Just out of the oven.
But since they turned out so well, I really should put it down here lest I forget it.

In a measuring cup, mix: 1 egg and enough plain yogurt to make 1 cup when mixed with the egg.
