Avengers? Come on, raise your hands. It was awesome, right? Good, now you can join the ranks of loyal Whedonites. Here's your number, and your welcome packet is the the mail.
... What do you mean, what's a Whedonite? Joss Whedon? Wrote and directed the movie? Formerly a cult icon until he broke all sorts of records with the Avengers opening weekend? Rightful King of the Nerds? That Joss Whedon?
... What do you mean, never heard of him?
*Sigh* I guess it's too much to expect you to convert after one movie. As awesome as that movie may be, and as many records as it broke. Me, I've been a Whedonite since age 10. That was when I first saw Buffy, and I never looked back. I met the bestie because of Joss Whedon. I started writing because of Joss Whedon. I'm a nerd because of Joss Whedon.
Once More, With Feeling.

Yield: 12 scones
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup firm butter or margarine
1 (6 oz.) container cherry or vanilla flavored yogurt
1/2 cup dried cherries or cherry-flavored cranberries
1/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
Heat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.
In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry blender, or rubbing it in using just your fingertips, until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Stir in yogurt, cherries and chocolate chips (dough will seem dry and crumbly).
On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into a ball. Knead dough lightly 10 times. Divide dough in half, On cookie sheet, pat each half of dough into 6-inch circles. Cut each circle into 6 wedges, using a shap knife, but do not separate wedges.
