These scones were awful! The nutmeg flavor was WAY too overpowering and did not compliment the flavor of the peaches. These scones were too dry and had a flour-y taste. I served these to my family (who will eat anything I give them) and they all took one bite, and said that they didn't like them. I will not make these again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. In a bowl, sift the flour, salt, sugar, nutmeg, and baking powder together.
  3. Work the butter into the dry ingredients, using your fingertips or a fork or pastry blender.
  4. In another bowl, mix the eggs, yogurt, and almond extract.
  5. Stir this into the dry ingredients; add the peaches and stir just until mixed; this is a very sticky dough.
  6. Liberally flour the counter and your hands; put the dough on the counter and pat it into a 6 x 9 inch rectangle about 1 inch thick.
  7. Cut the rectangle into 6 pieces and cut each small rectangle in half, forming two triangles.
  8. Place the scones on a well-greased cookie sheet.
  9. Brush with melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes, or until nicely browned and a cake tester comes out clean.
