Gluten-free Peach Scones

These Gluten-free Peach Scones are bursting with the flavor of ripe summer peaches.

Gluten-free Peach Scones
 
Yield: 17 to 19 scones • Preparation: 20 minutes • Bake: 15 minutes
Ingredients
  • 2 cups sifted gluten-free all-purpose flour*
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup cold salted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup diced peeled fresh peaches
  • 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Garnish: vanilla sugar†
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, whisking well. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into flour mixture until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add peaches, stirring well. Set aside.
  4. In a small bowl, combine cream and vanilla extract, whisking well. Add to flour mixture, stirring until a soft dough forms. (If mixture seems dry, add more cream, 1 tablespoon at a time, until uniformly moist.)
  5. Using a levered 3-tablespoon scoop, drop dough 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.
  6. Garnish with a sprinkle of vanilla sugar, if desired.
  7. Bake until edges are light golden brown and a wooden pick inserted near centers comes out clean, approximately 15 minutes.
Notes
*We used Gluten Free Pantry all-purpose flour (glutino.com). Using another brand may yield different results.
†We used Penzeys Vanilla Sugar.

  1. I posted a question…not sure if it went thru or not???????

    I asked if you can use regular all purpose flour to make the peach scones…I hate to buy the gluten free type, since I will not be using it for anything else.

    Thanks so much!

    • Yes, you can substitute regular all-purpose flour for the gluten-free flour in the Gluten-free Peach Scones recipes. You may not need as much liquid so add the cream gradually until the dough is moist enough.

  2. These are absolutely delicious! I have a peach tree in my backyard and used slightly more than one cup’s worth of peaches – so very yummy!! Thank you for posting! Ease include more gluten free recipes in future newsletters

  3. I made these peach gluten free scones for a tea with the girls in the family. They came out wonderful! They had very good texture and flavor. My daughter-in-law has Celiac’s, and she said these were the best scones she ever tasted! Thank you for a recipe that made me look good!
