They’re pretty much summer in a scone. I’m telling you, one of these + iced coffee = summer overload–and it’s not even summer yet! Could it get any better?

Yes, yes it could. If you wanted to go completely over-the-top and indulge, top it with some strawberry ice cream. With all the fruit floating around between the two, you could totally get away with it for breakfast.

Can I get an amen?

I’m partial to their texture, sweetness, and overall taste. It’s probably because I’m a biscuit person (I would do just about anything for a biscuit and jam), but that’s a story for another day.

Now, I know scones have a reputation for being notoriously dry, and often have a small resemblance to sand, which is not an appealing characteristic. Even though I love scones (perhaps more than most people), dry scones are not my cup of tea. In fact, they should be drenched in tea in order to be palatable.

So, rest assured, these peach pie scones are anything but dry. They’re packed with sour cream and heavy cream to make them plenty light and fluffy, and uber moist (I apologize to any of you who hate that word, but there really isn’t any adjective better fitting).

You’re going to love these!

Peach Pie Scones with a Vanilla Glaze

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 16 minutes

Yield: 6-8 Scones

Peach Pie Scones with a Vanilla Glaze

Ingredients

    Scones
  • 2 cups + 2 Tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and cold
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, plus more for brushing
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup fresh peaches, diced
  • Vanilla Glaze
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1-3 Tbsp heavy whipping cream

Instructions

    Scones
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl, mix together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt. Once combined, cut in the butter with a fork or pastry cutter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. Whisk together heavy cream, sour cream, egg, and vanilla extract. Slowly add the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined.
  4. Stir in the peaches, and mix until just combined.
  5. On a well-floured surface, turn out the scone dough and pat into a small disk that's about a 1/2" thick. Cut into 6-8 slices, and transfer to the baking sheet. Brush each scone with just a bit of heavy cream.
  6. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or just until golden brown. Allow to cool.
  7. Glaze
  8. Whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and 1 Tbsp of heavy cream. If the glaze is too thick, continue adding in heavy cream, one 1 Tbsp at a time, until it has reached the desired consistency. Pour over warm scones and enjoy!

    Made the peach scones this weekend for my Sunday school class. They were so delicious and a huge hit! I will definitely be saving this recipe for years to come! My only issue was my glaze did not turn out like yours. It was very dark and runny. It still added great flavor to the scones, but made them a little less picture perfect. I think I’ll do a higher sugar to vanilla ratio next time.

    • Michelle says:

      Hi, Traci! I am so glad they turned out all right for you! I’m sorry the glaze was runny, but I agree with you, I think more powdered sugar would do the trick to thicken it up! 🙂

    I am baking these as we speak. Mine turned out too wet though. This is my first time making scones. Any thoughts to what I might have done wrong? Could my butter have gotten to warm before I mixed it in? Or maybe was my peach too juicy? The other ingredients were all measured to the correct amounts. Hopefully they will still turn out yummy.

    • Michelle says:

      Hi, Andi! The wet dough very well could be from an extra juicy peach! Two things to help counteract that: 1. Use a paper towel to pat down your peaches in order to remove any excess liquid. 2. When you’re ready to turn the dough out, flour your counter well, and sprinkle more flour over your dough as you form it into a circle. Hope this helps 🙂

      • Andi says:

        Thank you. As an update, even though the dough was wet they turned out delicious. I just wasn’t able to cut them until they were done cooking and maybe they were a little more moist than a normal scone but still very yummy.

    My best friend made these peach scones for me for my birthday because I also just LOVE scones! I thought I was gonna die! These were by far the best scones I’ve ever had! They were as perfect as a scone could be so thank you so much for sharing this recipe. I’ve printed out the recipes for the other scones you show. I can’t wait to make them!

    WOW! These scones are fantastic! Some people I know in my family are cutting carbs. Is there a type of gluten-free flour that I could substitute? And if so, do you think the rest of the recipe would have to be altered? Thank you so much for the help!

    And regardless of whether or not I can make this work gluten free, this recipe is a keeper!

    I just made these and already ate 2?? they are so light and fluffy and it being my first time making scones, made me feel like a successful baker. Eastern peaches are just coming in right now…perfect!

  6. amy m says:

    Thanks for this recipe! I’ve never made scones before and was a little skeptical when my dough seemed very wet. But these turned out AMAZING! I can’t wait to try other variations.

    • Michelle says:

      Hi Heidi! I’ve never made them with canned peaches so I’m not 100% sure, but I have a feeling canned peaches are too wet and will make the scone dough hard to work with.

  7. Molly says:

    These just came out of the oven… Delish! I made a few small changes. I replaced 1 cup of flour with whole wheat flour and added 1/3 cup pecan pieces. The texture was still perfect and the taste delicious. I also opted to just top with sanding sugar. I will do the glaze next time. The dough (appropriately) isn’t very sweet and I think the glaze would make it just right. Oh – and I ended up adding about an extra TB of cream to the dough, which seemed to dry. However, once I added the peaches it was just a tad too wet. So – my suggestion is to follow the recipe and trust it will come out :-). That said, I loved the pecans in there.

  8. Pam says:

    Oh my word!! I sent this recipe to a friend for her to make, she made them and oh boy the best scone I’ve ever tasted!! I’m a scone a holic, lol. Thank you for this recipe!!
