Peaches 'n Cream Oatmeal Scones
Recipe by Christina Provo

Yields 8 scones

Ingredients -

1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup oats, ground
2 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed into 1/2 inch pieces
1/2 cup peach flavored yogurt, chilled
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp lemon extract
4 tbsp confectioners' sugar
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

Directions -
  1. Preheat oven to 425° and line a large baking sheet with parchment. Whisk flour, ground oats, sugar, baking powder and soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Cut in flour until mixture resembles coarse sand.

  2. Mix yogurt with beaten egg and lemon extract. Pour into dry ingredients and mix quickly until dough forms a cohesive ball. Using a 1/4 cup measuring cup, portion out dough into eight scones. If there's any dough remaining, press it onto formed scones. Bake for 15 minutes, or until scones are golden brown.

  3. As the scones bake, mix the confectioners' sugar with fresh lemon juice. Whisk until glaze is smooth. When scones have baked, brush glaze evenly over tops of scones while on baking sheet. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely, or serve warm.
