Peach Buttermilk Scones


  • 1 peach, diced small
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup spelt flour
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 6 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into cubes
  • ⅔ cup buttermilk, plus more as needed
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, or as needed


  1. Spread diced peach onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a flat layer; place in freezer.
  2. Mix all-purpose flour, spelt flour, sugar, baking powder, thyme, baking soda, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer; add butter and mix on Low until butter pieces are lentil-sized (do this by hand if you have no stand mixer).
  3. Stream buttermilk into the flour mixture until integrated in a mass that is just coming together.
  4. Remove the peaches from the freezer and add to the mixture while mixing on medium speed for just two turns.
  5. Turn dough out onto a floured work surface and pat into a 6½-inch square. Cut the square into quarters. half vertically and horizontally to create 4 smaller squares. Halve each square into two triangles and transfer to a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place baking sheet in freezer to chill scones while oven preheats.
  6. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  7. Once oven has reached temperature, remove sheet from the freezer and brush buttermilk onto the scones. Sprinkle turbinado sugar liberally onto the scones.
  8. Bake in preheated oven until golden, 25 to 30 minutes.
Mealthy tip:

If you can't find ripe peaches, use 1 cup of chopped frozen peaches instead. You can also try this recipe with other stone fruits or berries. It would be equally delicious with apricots, nectarines, blackberries or a mix of strawberries and pitted cherries.

These scones were really easy to make and delicious. I'm not the best baker, but this turned out exactly the way I wanted. I will probably make them again for the holidays.

Most of the vegetarian recipes do not need the to cook in the pot with most of the recipes. Do you have more for vegetarian?
