Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar packed
  • 8 tablespoons butter VERY cold and cut into tiny cubes.
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 cup peaches peeled, pitted and diced (fresh or frozen)

For the egg wash:

  • 1 large egg beaten
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar for sprinkling

For glaze:

  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside

Make the dough

  • In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and brown sugar. Mix well, making sure that no large clumps of brown sugar remain.
  • Work the butter cubes into the mixture. I use a pastry cutter. Fingers work well, too. When done, it should be a coarse, meal-like texture. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk the egg. Add the sour cream and heavy cream and whisk to mix well.
  • Add to the flour and butter mixture. Use a form to stir everything together, just until moistened. Do not over mix.
  • Gently fold in the peaches using a rubber spatula.
  • Pour the dough onto a floured work surface or baking mat. Knead lightly until the dough becomes workable.
  • Gently roll or pat into an 8-inch circle.
  • Cut the dough into 8 equal wedges. Transfer each wedge onto the baking sheet, placing them about 2-inches apart.
  • Lightly brush each scone with the egg wash. Sprinkle the tops with sugar.
  • Bake until light golden brown, about 18 to 20 minutes.
  • Cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet. Make the glaze while they cool.

Make the glaze

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the heavy cream and vanilla.
  • Add the confectioners sugar and whisk until smooth. Adjust the consistency by adding confectioners sugar or cream (to thicken or thin, accordingly)
  • Drizzle over the semi-warm scones and serve.
