Peach Scones

Kevin, (my husband— if you are a new reader), asked me if I could make something for a breakfast he had at his office this week. I wanted to try something new (of course) so I made these scones…using variations from another recipe I have for scones. They came out well! They have a slight peach and almond flavor. Do you have a favorite scone recipe?

Peach Scones

2 1/4 cups flour

1/4 cup plus 2 Tbs. sugar

1 Tbs baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp nutmeg

6 Tablespoons butter, cubed

2 eggs

1/3 cup Greek vanilla yogurt

1 large peach, diced

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 tsp almond extract

2 Tbs heavy cream

1/4 cup sliced almonds

ALMOND DRIZZLE

1 cup confectioners sugar

4 Tbs. heavy cream

1/4 tsp almond extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line baking sheet with parchment.

Mix together the first 6 ingredients (flour through nutmeg). Now cut in the butter.

In another bowl, combine the eggs, yogurt, peaches, extracts, and cream. Add the almonds.

Now gently stir the wet ingredients into the dry. Do not overtax. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls onto the sheets and sprinkle with sugar. Bake 15-18 minutes until cooked through but not golden.

While baking the scones, mix together the drizzle. After scones cool, add the drizzle to a plastic baggie, seal and snip the corner off the bottom. Gently squeeze the baggie to put the topping on the scones.

What did I love about this recipe? I really like to make breakfast foods with fresh, seasonal fruit. This one did the trick!
