Peach Lemon Scones

Serves: 6

Prep time: 15 minutes

Total time: 1 hour

Just like making biscuits, be sure not to over mix the scone dough. Use a light hand and you will be rewarded with tender, flaky scones bursting with zesty lemon and fresh peaches.

What You'll Need


2 cups all-purpose flour

1/3 cup, plus 2 tsp. granulated sugar, divided

1 Tbsp. baking powder 

½ tsp. kosher salt

½ cup cold unsalted butter, cubed

1 cup, plus 1 Tbsp. heavy cream, divided

1 Tbsp. grated lemon zest

1 medium peach, chopped (about 1 1/4 cups)

Lemon Glaze:

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 tsp. grated lemon zest

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

1/8 tsp. kosher salt

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Whisk together flour, 1/3 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl. Add butter, and cut into flour using a pastry blender or 2 forks until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add 1 cup of the cream, lemon zest, and peach, stirring just until combined
  2. Press dough on a lightly floured work surface into a 7-inch circle; cut into 6 wedges. Place dough wedges on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Brush tops with remaining 1 tablespoon cream and sprinkle with remaining 2 teaspoons sugar. Bake 15-18 minutes or until golden and set. Remove scones from baking sheet, and let cool on a wire rack.
  3. To make the glaze, whisk together the powdered sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt in a medium bowl. Drizzle glaze over the cooled scones.
