"This is out of a Weight Watchers cookbook called "Two's Company". I always double it and freeze them. DH gave them an excellent rating. They are easy to make and oh so good! 4 points per scone on the old program. Hope you enjoy! You can use any dried fruit like, apricots (my favorite), dates, raisins etc. I add the dried fruit to the flour mixture before adding the yogurt. I plan to make them with dried apples, adding a touch of cinnamon and topping them with cinnamon sugar. I also use 1/2 the sugar on top."
