Not sure how long do scones last? If you have any of your fresh scones, I recommend storing in the fridge. It will help preserve the fruit longer.
But, you can store the scones on the counter as well. They will last 1-2 days on counter or 3-5 days in the fridge.
Expert Tips and Variations To Recipe
- Make sure to use COLD butter, this is key when making scone dough!
- Not sure how to cut scones? Form the dough into a circle then with the knife create cuts like a pie.
- Try to resist using your hands when working with the dough except to shape. That will melt the cold butter and you want to try to avoid that.
- Make sure to not over-bake the scones, as that will dry them out.
- Feel free to swap the peaches with other fruit.

- 2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 Tablespoon Baking Powder
- ½ cup butter, cold
- 1 cup heavy Cream (plus extra for coating)
- 1 cup diced peaches (fresh or frozen)
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 tablespoon butter
- Heavy cream for coating top of scones
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Start by adding your flour, sugar, and baking powder and add to a bowl. Mix well until combined.
- Now you will shave your butter or dice into very small cubes. With a pastry cutter work it into the dough. Then add in the heavy cream to mix it together.
- Once the scone dough is mixed, fold in the diced peaches.
- Place the dough on a flour surface and shape into a ball. This will be the shape of the scones.
- Now in a small bowl add your crumb toppings except the heavy cream. Mix well.
- Brush the scone dough with the heavy cream just enough to coat. Then sprinkle the crumb topping on top of.
- Bake at for 15-20 minutes or until the scones are cooked.
You can use canned peaches, fresh or frozen.
Make sure to use cold butter, this is important for the dough.
I use a cheese grater to shave the butter, it works great.
Avoid using your hands when mixing the dough, it will melt the butter. Only use your hands to shape the dough into a circle.
All ovens heat differently so make sure to watch the cook time. Scones will dry out if you overbake it.
You can skip the crumb topping and do a scone glaze you drizzle on top instead if you would like.
