  • Cold unsalted butter – 6 tablespoons, cut into small cubes – 90 ml
  • Pure vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon – 2.5 ml

Preparation Directions

  • Take a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Set the sheet aside.
  • You begin by whisking the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Combine sugar, baking powder, all-purpose flour, salt, and cinnamon and whisk them thoroughly.
  • Cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients mixture, mixing it until you achieve a coarse meal texture, with some large lumps of butter.
  • It’s time to mix the liquid ingredients together. Whisk a cup of heavy cream and vanilla extract together in a small bowl.
  • Gently pour the liquid mix over the flour mixture, stirring the same with a spatula until it forms a dough-like consistency.
  • Lightly flour the countertop and transfer the dough to the same, followed by gently kneading it with your hands to make it into a ball. Pat the dough into a thick circle, cutting the scones into 8 smaller triangles using a sharp knife.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit while placing your peach scones on the lined baking sheet and putting them in the freezer for around 20 minutes.
  • The next step is to bake the scones. Take them out from the freezer and coat them with some heavy cream using a pastry brush. Bake the scones for 18 to 23 minutes.
  • Once the scones look a bit golden brown on the edges and the bottom, you can take them out and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. You can then transfer them to a wire cooling rack before serving.
