The ginger is totally optional, but it adds a nice touch especially if your peaches are not as sweet as you would like them to be. You can use fresh or frozen peaches in this recipe.
This recipe calls for my DIY biscuit mix as the main ingredient for the scones but you can use a store-bought biscuit mix and that will work just as well.
Peach Scone Recipe Ingredients
3 cups biscuit mix 1 Tbsp fresh grated ginger (1 tsp dry ginger will work as well) 1/2 cup diced peaches, the size of peas 1/2 cup milk 1 egg, beaten
Peach Scone Recipe Directions
Place biscuit mix in a medium-sized bowl and toss in the ginger to make sure it is evenly distributed. Fresh ginger has a tendency to want to clump up and stay together so you need to make sure the ginger gets evenly blender with the dry mix before you start adding the wet ingredients.
Toss in your diced peaches and coat with the flour, then add your milk and eggs. Stir everything until just combined.
Dump the mixture onto a piece of plastic and use the plastic to help you form the dough into a circle about 8 inches in diameter. Cut into 8 wedges and transfer to a baking sheet that has been lined with parchment or coated with non-stick spray.
Bake scones for 10-15 minutes at 450°F. Glaze with powdered sugar glaze if desired.
