Peaches n' Cream Scones

The aroma of warm peaches, cinnamon and vanilla fill my home this morning.  These tender scones with a light vanilla glaze are a perfect start to the day.  Easy to put together and so worth it.  





Peaches n' Cream Scones

2 cups flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, cold and cubed
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup peaches, fresh or frozen, diced

Glaze

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp whipping cream

Mix all the dry ingredients together.  Using a pastry cutter, cut in the butter until the dough turns into course crumbs.  In a small bowl, mix together sour cream, vanilla and whipping cream.  Add into the dry ingredients and stir until it's completely combined.  Add in the peaches.  Turn out on to a floured surface.  Pat into a circle that is approximately 1/2 - 3/4" thick.  Cut into 8 slices and put onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Make sure they are spread out since the scores will spread slightly.  Brush 2 tbsp whipping cream on top of the scones.  Bake for 20 minutes at 400°.  Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.  Allow to sit for 10 minutes and then spoon glaze over the scones.
