Peach & Dried Blueberry Scones + White Chocolate Glaze
For pretty much as long as we lived in Washington, I've been making baked goods for us to eat for quick breakfasts on the weekdays. With me going back to school, I'm sure we'll be relying even more heavily on easy smoothies and such. I'm really going to miss all the baked goods and will be so looking forward to when I am able to bake fresh treats for breakfast.
So for now I'm enjoying these peach and dried blueberry scones. I was originally going to make a peach thyme scone, but the thyme leaves looked a little too sad for consumption, so I pulled the leftover dried blueberries from the Momofuku cookies and subbed those instead. The overall texture of the scones was a little more muffin-like than I would have liked, but still a great way to start out the day!
