Peach Scones

29 Sep

I’ve never tasted scones so I don’t really know what they are.  I’ve been curious about them since watching the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten make them in her show.  I thought they were like cookies but I didn’t really know what to expect.

I wanted to try making some scones and since we had a can of peaches sitting around, I decided to make some peach scones.

I certainly didn’t expect the dough to be so wet.  I guess I should have since there’s cream mixed in it.  So instead of shaping it on a flat surface then cutting out the shapes, I just scooped it out using our biggest ice cream scoop.  My kids helped in brushing the tops with cream and sprinkling the sugar on top.  I just used regular sugar instead of cinnamon sugar since my kids are not big fans of cinnamon.

I didn’t really know what to expect but it came out softer than I thought.  And I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that it wasn’t too sweet since the recipe only called for 4 tablespoons of sugar.  My kids ate one each but they didn’t really like it so much.  I think I shouldn’t have added the almond extract as the smell was quite strong and a bit of a turn-off for the kids.

I was thinking it would be like cookies but it’s more like bread.  Jon decided to spread some butter on it and that made it better.  I guess it would go well with butter and jam.  It was okay but I probably won’t be making this again soon (since I had to eat most of it!).  At least I got to cross one item of my list!  Yey!
