Peaches and Cream Scones

Recipe Courtesy Chef Bryan Woolley

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp orange extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 2 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • pinch baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 stick cold butter, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup fresh peaches, peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds

Preparation

  1. Place diced peaches on a paper towel to absorb extra juices. Set aside until ready to use.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together egg, cream, orange juice, orange and almond extracts. Set aside.
  3. In a separate large bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk dry ingredients together.
  4. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, combine the butter and the dry ingredients until it resembles small peas.
  5. Add liquid from step 2 to the dry ingredients. Mix just until dry ingredients are incorporated.
  6. Fold in prepared peaches being careful not to bruise them.
  7. Spoon a large tablespoon of batter on to a parchment lined baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until golden (about 20-25 minutes).
  8. Drizzle with confectionary icing and serve. Enjoy!
