    • Preparation time: 15 minutes + chilling

    • Total time: 27-30 minutes + chilling

    Makes: 8 - 10

    Ingredients

    400g self-raising flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting
    1½ tsp baking powder
    100g butter, chilled and diced
    75g caster sugar
    250g FAGE Total 5% Greek Yoghurt
    1 British Blacktail Medium Free Range Egg, yolk only

    For the filling
    500g mixed berries (such as raspberries, blackberries and strawberries), in rough 1cm dice
    1 tbsp caster sugar
    2 tbsp lemon juice
    400g FAGE Total 5% Greek Yoghurt
    2 tbsp icing sugar, sifted

    Method

    1. Combine the berries for the filling with the caster sugar and lemon juice in a bowl. Cover and chill for at least an hour, or for up to 24 hours.

    2. To make the scones, preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7 and line a baking tray with baking parchment. In a large bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Add the butter, and rub in using your fingertips until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs (alternatively, pulse the ingredients in a food processor, until combined). Stir in the caster sugar. Combine the yoghurt and egg yolk in a bowl, and stir into the flour mixture. Mix using a round-ended knife, until the mixture just comes together, being careful not to overcombine.

    3. Turn onto a floured surface and use a floured rolling pin
    to roll the mixture to roughly 3cm thick. Use a 6-7cm fluted cutter, dipped in flour, to cut 8-10 rounds from the mixture, rerolling if necessary. Place onto the prepared tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until risen and golden. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

    4. To fill, mix the yoghurt and icing sugar together. Mash the fruit slightly with the back of a spoon, then slice open the scones and top each half with a spoonful of yoghurt and some of the fruit.
