Light and fluffy with sweet fresh peaches, these Peach Scones are a wonderful snack to accompany an afternoon cup of tea.


This past week has been a rough one. We’re having a bit of trouble getting back into our routine since the kids have gone back to school – nobody really wants to get up in the morning, and there just don’t seem to be enough hours in the day to accomplish everything everyone wants or needs to do. Add that to a crazy stressful week at work with some unexpected issues popping up and I am tapped out by noon. Sure sucks for me that I need to work until at least 4 each day…

Being unable to escape the stress of the work day, I’ve been trying to take a few minutes each afternoon to regroup. For me, that either means going for a walk around the building to burn off some energy or finding a few minutes of quiet, closing my door and sitting with a cup of tea.

It seems like most people are either coffee or tea people, but I enjoy both equally. Typically, coffee in the morning and tea in the afternoon. But not usually anything too sweet – I usually prefer a nice black tea, but also enjoy some green and herbal teas when the mood strikes. Pair it with a pastry and I’m extra happy.

Masters Teas by Adiago Teas

Masters Teas is a new venture by Adiago Teas, featuring high-grade, small-lot artisan teas. But it’s really more than that. It’s about sharing the story behind the teas – who are the farmer’s behind each tea? What is their story? What is their inspiration for the tea that they produce. I can get lost for hours, reading about each farmer and what their life is like. Each tea is also paired with a story about the leaves each tea is made of. Absolutely fascinating.

While you won’t find an Earl Grey tea on this site, you’ll find dozens of others – from black and green teas to lesser-known Pu-Erh teas. Don’t worry if you don’t recognize the names of the teas. There are vivid descriptions of the flavors of each tea, as well as clear instructions on steeping times and temperatures (to include which teas are best to make iced tea) to ensure you have the best results.

You don’t have to be a tea connoisseur to enjoy these teas. I was lucky enough to try several, to include many of the black teas. I enjoyed each and every one of them.

These Peach Scones are the perfect accompaniment to a good cup of tea. They come together quickly, are light and fluffy, and have delightful sweet bites of fresh peaches. You can swap out the fruit or leave it out all together if you prefer. But peach season will last a little bit longer, so why not enjoy these while you can?

Ingredients

  • 1 c. all-purpose flour plus more for dusting counter
  • 1 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 fresh peach chopped
  • 1/2 c. vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 425F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat and set aside.

  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

  3. Add chopped peaches and stir to coat. This will keep the peaches from sticking together.

  4. Stir in yogurt, egg, and melted butter. Dough will be very wet.

  5. Lightly flour a clean counter. Turn dough onto counter and pat into a 1/2-inch thick round. Cut into 8 triangle. Transfer to prepared baking sheet.

  6. Lower oven temperature to 400F. Bake scones for 12-15 minutes, until cooked throughout and lightly browned. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
