Peach and White Chocolate Chip Scones
Ok, so being from Utah these are not your normal "Utah" Scones.
While shopping a while back I stopped at our local bread store and they had "lemon scones" they were sampling, they were amazing. So last week when we peeled what was left of the peaches my in-laws had given us, I stuck them in the fridge, and all week all I have thought about what to make with them and this has been in the back of my mind, scones with peaches, and white chocolate chips.
3 cups Flour
½ cup Sugar
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
Zest from one Lemon (about 2 tablespoons)
4 tbsp Butter
¾ cup Milk
½ cup pureed Peaches
1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
½ cup chopped Dried Peaches
1/2 cup White Chocolate Chips
Pre-heat your oven to 375° and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt and lemon zest together it a mixer. Cut up the butter in small pieces and then add to the flour mix and mix it till it is in small pieces. In a blender puree about ½ C canned peaches then add the milk, pour ½ of into the flour mix and mix together. Then add the rest and the cranberries, chopped peaches and chocolate chips and mix gently and only until it is all mixed, do not over mix it will make them tough.
Lightly flour a clean surface, split the mix in two and put the dough balls onto the floured surface. Flatten and mold them into two round discs, cut them into 8 slices.
Arrange on the baking sheet, you can get them close together, but make sure they are not touching. Bake for 15-18 minutes, until they are slightly golden. Take out of the oven, let cool on the baking sheet (this helps to keep them cooking) for 10 minutes then you can glaze them.
¾ cup Powdered Sugar
1-2 tbsp Lemon Juice- see below
Sift the powdered sugar into a small bowl, add 1 tbsp lemon juice, add a little if it does not run well, mix with a fork, drizzle the glaze on the scones. Wait a few minutes and drizzle some more, and repeat. If you put it all on at once you will end up with a puddle of glaze below.
I'm pretty excited to snack on these this week for breakfast.
Hope you have fun Cookin'
