Fresh Citrus Yogurt Scones

These homemade Citrus Yogurt Scones are one of family favorites! We love the fresh citrus flavor with the burst of sweet creamy white chocolate and the light crunch of the nuts.  If you prefer no nuts….leave them out!  These are velvety soft, and lightly sweet…. true citrus homemade scone paradise!  DELISH! Love and lemon zest!

We bake a tower of these scones, make some eggs and bacon, blend up a fruit smoothie…and brace ourselves for the thundering of many pairs of feet…rushing the kitchen table.  Our favorite way to begin a peaceful Sunday! 

*We love to have a big breakfast together as a family on Sundays!  Trust me…this is a huge effort for me and PJ…we would much rather sleep in and have a leisurely morning.  But, we’ve found if we get up and make a pile of breakfast favorites, our kids get up without a fuss and we all can spend some quality time together before the rush of church preparation begins.  It’s a FAB way to start the day!
