Of course you can buy frozen peaches, or lower yourself to canned one but it’s not the same.  Still, I wasn’t going to let peach season slip by without treating myself, and my boat to a peach extravaganza.  Starting with  Schooner Scones.

A a delightful treat at breakfast these scones are quick to be snapped up.  If you like your scones a little sweeter, sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top.

    Someone in our household , loves peach scones, but he’s only had them with frozen peaches, if you happen around, at peach season, maybe you can make him some, of course they aren’t good for him
