Did you know August is National Peach Month? I just read that on Facebook last week so obviously it must be true. Peaches are one of my top favorite summer foods and they have me wishing I lived somewhere in the south so I could truly enjoy them in all their glory. A ripe summer peach is truly a thing of beauty, but you know what else is beautiful? Fluffy, tender buttermilk scone dough enveloping sliced peaches sprinkled with cinnamon-sugar. In other words, peach cobbler that you can justify eating for breakfast because it’s a scone. Of course since this is not actually a cobbler, the ratio of fruit to biscuit is flip-flopped which is cause for the biscuit lovers to rejoice. Even as a fruit lover myself, I’m certainly not complaining. These are just too dang good.
In case you aren’t convinced yet (really?), I made these twice in one week. That never happens. (Technically I made them three times, because I majorly messed up the second attempt. Apparently 1¾ cup buttermilk is not the same as ¾ cup. Go figure.) Anyway, this is a recipe worth making 2.5 times in one week. Take note. Make scones. Be happy.
