It’s been raining nonstop here in Atlanta. I think I could count the days I would qualify as perfect “summer” days on two hands. I am so pale. My rain boots are always by the door. Seriously depressing stuff.
It turns out buttermilk peach scones offer a little brightness to the soppy gray color palette outside. Peaches have been on sale recently, so I decided to whip up a quick batch of these easy scones from Turnips 2 Tangerines–a lovely blog that a friend turned me on to a couple of weeks ago. I left off the white chocolate chip glaze, as I wanted to let the peaches really dominate the flavor. And did they ever.
These scones were light and crumbly and peachy and delicious. I can’t wait to try the base dough recipe with other fruit. I’m thinking strawberries and blueberries for a start.
I’m crossing my fingers for the sun to come out soon. In the meantime, I’ll be in the kitchen making scones!
