Simple Peach Scones

Scones are my daughter’s favorite! She always requests them at coffee shops, so we finally decided to try making them at home. Most recipes for scones involve cutting butter into dry ingredients, similar to how you make a pie dough, which can be a bit tedious. I wanted something simpler.

Enter heavy cream. With heavy cream you get the same richness as butter, but a lot less hassle. Instead of working the butter in with your fingers, you simply stir in the cream with a spoon!

These scones are best enjoyed the same day, but you can keep them overnight in a covered container if needed. Warm up the leftovers in the microwave before serving for best results ?

Simple Peach Scones


2 cups all-purpose flour (or gluten-free flour blend)

1/4 cup sugar

1 Tablespoon baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 firm-ripe peach, diced

1 ¼ cup heavy cream, plus extra for drizzling on top

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Sugar in the raw


For icing:

½ cup powdered sugar

1 Tablespoon milk

Splash of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add peaches and toss to coat.
  3. Add heavy cream and vanilla to dry ingredients. Stir gently until a dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Form dough into a circle about 10 inches in diameter. Cut into 8 wedges.
  4. Place wedges on lined baking sheet. Brush tops with heavy cream and sprinkle with raw sugar.
  5. Bake scones until light golden brown, about 16-18 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes on a drying rack. While scones are cooling, in a small bowl mix together powdered sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle icing over cooled scones and serve.
