  • 1 cup diced fresh peaches (about 2 medium) peel intact
  • 2 1/2 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar plus additional to sprinkle tops
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup frozen unsalted butter finely grated
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream or buttermilk (not fat free)
  • 2 large eggs, beaten (use one for egg wash)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp pure almond extract
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbsp heavy cream plus additional as needed to thin
  • few drops almond or vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp toasted sliced almonds for garnishing optional


  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl use a whisk to sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add butter, tossing to evenly distribute.
  • Add peaches, mxing to coat with flour. Make a well in the center.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together cream, 1 egg, vanilla and almond extracts. Pour into dry ingredients, mixing until fully moistened.
  • Turn dough out onto a floured surface. Turn to coat with flour, if sticky. Press into roughly an 8 inch circle 3/4-1 inch thick. Use a sharp knife dipped in flour to cut into even wedges.
  • Place onto baking sheet side by side leaving around 1/2 inch between. Brush tops with egg and sprinkle with additional granulated sugar. (Chill for 30 minutes or freeze for 20 minutes.)
  • Bake for 23-25 minutes or until golden. Use a sharp knife to cut between to separate scones. Let cool while you make the glaze.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, cream, and almond extract. Drizzle over warm scones (not hot) and garnish with toasted almonds, if desired.
