  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour Using unbleached produces a softer texture
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 8 tablespoons butter cold, cut into pieces
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup peaches peeled, pitted, diced,fresh, or frozen and thawed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking sheet. Alternatively, grease it.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and baking powder.
  • Work in the butter, using a pastry blender. Alternatively, use a fork or your fingers
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, and the extracts.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.
  • Add the peaches, stirring just until everything is combined. The dough will be wet and sticky.
  • Drop the dough by the 1/4-cupful onto the prepared pan. Use a measuring cup or a muffin scoop.
  • Sprinkle the scones with coarse sugar, if desired.
  • Bake the scones for 20 to 25 minutes, until they're a light golden brown. Remove them from the oven, and let them cool on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.
  • Serve warm, or at room temperature. Store at room temperature, well-wrapped, for several days; freeze for longer storage.


For added flavor, roast the diced peaches before adding them to the dough. Yes, this does bring out even more juicy flavor!
