I love breakfast foods– well, I love carbs, and breakfast/brunch is the best time of day because so many carbs! French toast, pancakes, biscuits, cereal, and scones….
I also have lots and lots of peaches because my eyes were much bigger than my stomach at the Costco. Yay pinterest and a wonderful recipe from A Latte Food.
Only issue is that I didn’t have whipping cream, so I decided I would use heavy cream. Well, there wasn’t any heavy cream on hand either, but I at least knew how to take my skim milk and turn it into heavy cream– with butter. So first up, I combined 3/4 cup milk with 1/4 cup melted butter. I ended up with too much but better to have more than not enough.
And then I made scones and ate almost all of them
- 2 cups + 2 Tbsp flour
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 tbs baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and cold
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup heavy cream, plus some extra
- 1/4 cup sour cream
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 peach, diced into small pieces
- Vanilla Glaze
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 tbs vanilla extract
- 1-3 tbs heavy cream
- Prep time: 10 min
- Cook time: 18-20 min
- Servings: 8 scones
- Difficulty: easy
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
In a mixer bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Then, cut in the butter with a fork until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
In another small bowl, whisk together heavy cream, sour cream, egg, and vanilla. Slowly add the ingredients from the small bowl into the mixer. Combine together. Stir in the peaches by hand.
On a well-floured surface, bring dough together and push into a circle about 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 6-8 slices with a pizza cutter. (If dough is too sticky, you can also put into slices when it comes out of the oven.) Transfer scones to the cookie sheet. Brush each scone with cream.
Bake for 16-18 minutes, or just until golden brown. Allow to cool.
Whisk together ingredients, starting with one tbs of heavy cream. Ass more cream until the glaze is the right consistency. Brush over warm scones fresh from the oven and enjoy!
