Peach Preserves and Oatmeal Scones

                                                            Hello everyone,
       It is a beautiful September day here so I am just popping in for a few minutes to share the recipe for               Oatmeal Scones that some of you asked for and the peach preserve recipe as well.
                                Last week I made some peach preserves from the Niagara baskets of peaches that I                                     look forward to each year.Our winters seem to be too cold for peaches to grow here                                    although that may be changing as I see peach trees are being sold here now.
                                 The peach preserve recipe was basically the recipe here except I chopped by hand
                            instead of using the food processor and I used less sugar as they will not last long anyway!    
              The oatmeal scone recipe is pretty easy to make and they are delicious.

                   1 1/2 cups of flour- I usually use part spelt and part unbleached white flour
                    1/2 cup of rolled oats
                     1/3 sugar
                      1 Tablespoon baking powder
                      1/2 teaspoon salt
                       1/3 cup of melted butter
                        1 egg
                          1/3 cup of milk

                        whisk dry ingredients together and then whisk liquid ingred. and add to dry.
                        mix gently together - knead a few times then flatten into a circle about 1/2 inch thick.
                        Place on cookie sheet.

                         Sprinkle top with a tablespoon  of sugar or sugar and cinnamon.
                         Bake at 375 for about 15 min.

                          Enjoy !
    Thank you for your visit and I hope you will enjoy the scones and peach preserves.
