Peach Cobbler Scones

We bought a house this week!

After many offers that that fell through over the course of 10 months, we finally have one of our own! With the help of our families, we spent the entire holiday weekend painting every inch of the house, myself included.

We’re hoping to complete renovations in a couple of weeks and then move in! It’ll be the first time we’ve had a place of our own in almost a year. I’m not going to know what to do with myself!

Can you tell I’m excited?

Well, with all of that housework, a mama needs to feed her helpers. I made sure we all had ample food: beer for the men and lots of sweet treats! And what a great way to start your day than with peach cobbler scones!

We’ve been making a lot of peach cobbler with the abundance of local peaches in the house. And while I’m a sucker for peach cobbler, I had the idea of making the breakfast version of it (however, peach cobbler for breakfast does rock my world, too).

These peach cobbler scones aren’t as overwhelmingly sweet as the traditional peach cobbler, but are the perfect breakfast along side your morning coffee.

I’m back to the grind of painting and Liam is off to his first day of 2 year old preschool this morning! Have a wonderful day!

  1. Oh wow – congrats on your new house!!! So exciting!
    This looks like such a great scone recipe… It’d go perfect with a nice hot cup of coffee and a quiet house!

  2. I just wanted to let you know I made these this morning and they were amazing!! They turned out a bit cakier (less dry and sconey) than I expected, but were a big hit with my friends and fabulously peachy! I have been wanting to make these for awhile. 🙂
