Banana-nut skillet scones

Yield: 25 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 Bananas; (very ripe)
2 Cartons; 6-oz, banana yogurt
3½ cup All-purpose flour
¾ cup Granulated sugar
1 tablespoon Baking powder
1 teaspoon Baking soda
¼ teaspoon Salt
10 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) Cold Butter; plus more for the skillet
1 cup Chopped walnuts or pecans

Mash bananas in small bowl; stir in yogurt and set aside. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in 10 tablespoons butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add yogurt mixture; stir just until moistened. Stir in nuts. Turn out onto well floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, just until dough holds together. Pat into a sqare about ½ inch thick. Cut into 2½-inch-squares (dough will be very soft.) Heat a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat; lightly butter skillet. Use a spatula or turner to lift scones onto griddle; do not crowd.

Cover and cook until bottoms are lightly browned and tops begin to dry, about 4-5 minutes. Turn, add more butter if desired, and cook on other side until golden, about 3 minutes Serve warm with butter and honey.
