Anyone remember my very first post? My Perfect Yummy Scones? Well…. I used that recipe as my base for these flavorful, fresh peach scones after my trip to the orchard! (see my Peach Palooza post) These scones won’t disappoint! And the sweet peaches were just the right hint of sweetness! I added my cubed peaches right to the scones, but if you feel like your peaches need a little added sweetness, you can add some cinnamon and sugar. Make sure to add your cinnamon and sugar mixture right before you add the peaches to the scones. When you add sugar to peaches, they like to make juice. Juice is usually good, but not in your scone dough! Enjoy!
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 6 tablespoons cold, cubed butter
- 1 egg, whipped
- 1 cup cream
- 1 cup fresh peaches, cubed (sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon if they aren't sweet enough)
- Mix together dry ingredients, add butter, mix with a food processor or pastry blender until mixture resembles cornmeal. Add egg and cream. Stir until just combined. Roll onto floured board. Form into a disk. ( I always cut the mixture in half at this point to make small scones) Once you have a disc, place peaches in center of disc and fold over. Form dough into disc again and cut with a sharp knife into 8 equal pieces. Repeat with your other disc. Bake at 425 for 14 minutes or until cooked through. (if your peaches are very ripe and juicy it may take the peaches longer to bake) Enjoy!
- *If you decide to add cinnamon and sugar to your peaches, make sure you do it right before you add the peaches to your scones.
