Peach Jam Scones

Dessert for breakfast what a charming idea

Except for the blistering heat, peach season rules.

Peach Jam Scones

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 ripe peaches, skinned, sliced thin
  • 2 tbsp peach jam with amaretto (or regular peach jam)
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg (skip if using our jam recipe)
  • cinnamon sugar for dusting

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, nutmeg (if using), baking soda and salt. Stir to combine, then cut in butter with a fork or pastry cutter. In a small bowl, combine buttermilk and egg, whisk lightly. Pour into dry mix and stir just to combine. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface. Pat into an 8 to 10 inch round. Place peach jam in the center then the peaches, spreading out evenly but giving yourself room, about two inches, around the edge. Fold dough up and around the peach center. Tuck everything in to make sure there’s no leakage. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. Bake at 375 until golden and the dough is set, about 20-25 minutes. Cool for about 10 minutes, cut and serve.

  5. Love the idea of peach scones.
    🙂 Mandy

  6. I should not check in with you guys before breakfast, especially on days when there’s no time to cook….sounds wonderful. New England peaches can’t come close to the flavor of southern ones, even in a good year!

  7. Eva Taylor says:

    We’re just getting into our local peaches now. This looks fantastic with the chunks of great moist peaches.

  8. Mad Dog says:

    I think I’d have to save it for pudding, but sounds delicious 😉

  9. ‘Tis the season for peaches, all I need know is a dollop of cream and a cup of coffee — YUM!

    Breakfast dessert – the most under-rated meal of the day!

    I’m all for dessert for breakfast. Always! And peaches are a big hit around our house this summer.

  12. Peaches are everywhere and your scones look amazing!

    Love this – your scones look awesome. Love how you rolled the scones out, then added the peaches and jam what a great way to get the fruit incorporated ———-

  14. sallybr says:

    Also loved the twist of adding the peaches and jam after rolling out – brilliant!

  15. nrhatch says:

    Well that looks yummy! 😀

  16. pursuitofhappieness says:

    Can’t wait to try this out!

  17. egg me on says:

    Whoa! That scone looks like a piece of pie! Or cake! Or some other equally enjoyable baked dessert. No one would argue if you ate this for breakfast, or anytime throughout the day.

  18. Christina says:

    Ok…you know my weakness for scones! Peach jam with amaretto? Heck yeah! 🙂

  19. Courtney says:

    Dessert for breakfast is the best!

  20. Mmmmm peach scones! I want some!

  21. Charles says:

    I’ve had real bum luck with peaches this year 😦 Last year I was scoffing them by the case load… not so much this year… can never seem to find any really nice ones. I love a nice scone – never tried them with peach though… they sound lovely!

  22. Agreed. Hot weather blows. But, you have tasty looking scones to show for it!

  23. dessert, breakfast, snack- i could eat these all day

  24. Just want to reach in and grab that scone!

  25. This is my ideal breakfast. Looks delicious!

  26. kristina says:

    Peach scones sound so good right now – might need to turn on the oven for these despite how hot it is!

  27. nancyc says:

    Yum–I love scones, but haven’t had peach yet–sounds great!

  28. All your peachy recipes have sent me shopping for a kilo of them… can’t wait to dig in 😀

  29. Karen says:

    You are a brave man to be baking in your 100 degree days but your end result sounds like it would be worth heating up the kitchen. The scones sound terrific.
