In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, 1/4 cup sugar, the baking powder and salt.
Using your fingers, rub the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
Measure out 1 1/2 tablespoons cream and set aside; stir the remaining cream into the flour mixture until just combined, then gently fold in the peach mixture and any juices.
On a lightly floured work surface, pat the dough into a 6-by-9-inch rectangle.
Using a 3-inch round cookied cutter, cut out 6 rounds; combine the scraps and cut out 2 more rounds.
Transfer the rounds to a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet.
