I’m sure you’ve noticed that peaches have kind of taken over the blog lately. I just can’t stop eating them. This year they seem especially good around here. However, my husband and I can’t keep up with eating all of pounds of peaches I manage to buy. That means you get more peach recipes!
If you find yourself in the same situation with more fresh fruit than you can eat, these peach snickerdoodle scones are a great way to use up some of your fresh peaches! Snickerdoodle scones have been my favorite for a long time. I love having them for breakfast, especially when enjoyed with a fresh cup of coffee. Fresh peaches seemed like a logical addition to them.
The insides of these scones are tender and filled with the warm spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. The crackly topping of cinnamon sugar adds more of the snickerdoodle flavor and look to these scones. Chunks of peach add a bit of sweetness and moisture. All you need is your favorite cup of coffee or tea and you have the makings of a great start to your day!
