Peach Pie Scones

I love making scones and was excited to try this version. Peaches have been so delicious this summer. They’re super sweet; we’ve been eating them nonstop.

These scones were just as good! The scones are not super sweet, so the glaze definitely adds a perfect amount. You’ll get sweet chunks of peaches through the scone. My scones didn’t fluff up as much as I expected. I’m guessing I need to get a new container of baking powder and try them again.

20190919_174321.jpg2 cups + 2 Tbsp flour
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and cold
1 egg
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream (more for brushing)
1/4 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup fresh pieces, diced

Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1-3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut in the cubes of butter with a pastry knife until small crumbs form. In a large measuring cup, whisk together the egg, heavy cream, sour cream and heavy cream. Pour into the dry mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in the diced peaches.

Turn the dough out on a floured surface and form into a circle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 6-8 slices and transfer onto the prepared baking sheet. Brush the tops with heavy whipping cream. Bake for 16 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly.

While your scones are cooling, make the glaze. Whisk together the powdered sugar, vanilla extract and one tablespoon of heavy cream. Add more cream by one tablespoon at at time until your desired consistency of frosting is reached. Pour or spread the glaze over the scones. Enjoy with a cup of coffee.
