Strawberry Yogurt Scones

So...I have had an obsession with buying strawberries at the store because they have been soooo cheap. Everytime I ran in for something I grabbed another carton not even thinking about how many I already may have at home. Then when I ordered my Bountiful Basket this week, they had an add-on option of 12 lbs of strawberries for $8! That's an awesome price! Once again, I got MORE strawberries! So, I decided there were probably a bunch of people that ordered them and that we were ALL going to need some recipes to use them up! I've been searching cookbooks, magazines, & the internet for recipes using strawberries. I have found several and am so excited to try them. Strawberries are just so pretty and they look so enticing! And the yummy sweet flavor is just a plus! I tried these scones that I found on Annies-Eats Blog. I had to change them up to work with what I had on hand. They are a healthy breakfast and they have just the right amount of sweet! I'll certainly be making them again!
