Breakfast Peach Scones

Sunday, August 28, 2011
Not much other than the smell of freshly baked peach or any fruit scones with a hot beverage like coffee or tea gets everyone to the tables for breakfast faster!

Buttery, flaky summer and fall fruits combined that make these a match made in heaven with a sweet and tart scone.

These are terrific with tea, coffee a cold glass of milk, plain or glazed with a bit of vanilla or almond-flavored icing.

What are Scones?

Scones can be made sweet or savory with the consistency of buttery flaky biscuit dough, perfect with coffee and tea, and usually found at bakeries wherever muffins or coffee are sold.

Depending on the ingredients they should be crisp and buttery tasting with crumbly corners and a soft, flaky interior.

We make ours with heavy cream, butter, and simple ingredients and these actually can be interchanged with any fruits you and your family prefer.

Below you will find a list of suggestions to make any flavor scones you like!

Scones are usually served with clotted cream, flavorful jams, jellies or butter.

Serving Scones

Traditional English scones may include raisins or currants, but are often plain, served with jams, preserves, lemon curd or honey for added flavor—perhaps with a touch of clotted cream as I mentioned earlier.

Scones that have several additions in them like dried fruit such as cranberries and dates, nuts, orange rind, chocolate morsels and other flavorings—are best enjoyed without butter and jam.

Other's are drizzled with a light powdered sugared glaze for more sweetness as you will find prodominately by American bakers and much more like a quick bread than the English version.
