Peach Cobbler Scones are such an amazing tea-time treat which double up as desserts too!
Peach Cobbler Scones are a delicious tea-time treat infused with the fruity goodness of fresh peaches, the warmth of cinnamon and the richness of butter. Scones are a typical British tea-time snack that falls somewhere between tiny cakes and yeasted sweet bread. These scones are perfect for your evening Xmas teas too!
Apparently, scones are of Scottish origin taking their name from the stone of destiny (or scone) the place where Scottish Kings were crowned. The original scones were triangular in shape and made from oats. Now there are so many different shapes and sizes of scones. Apparently, a typical British tea would consist of scones and cream and strawberry jams.
Cobbler is a very American term and actually refers to a fruit or savory dish which was poured in a large baking tray and covered with batter and just baked without worrying about its shape. It became a favorite breakfast item for the British American colonies. I love reading the history of food, and its amazing how people across the globe changed their ways of eating to suit the region where they were settling. Guess, it is the best way to integrate into a community and make the best of both of the worlds!
Peach cobbler is a traditional dessert served in American with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Did you know that in order to sell more canned peaches, the Georgia Peach Council declared April 13th as National Peach Cobbler day 🙂 Now, talk about smart marketing 🙂
And of course, peaches are good for health too. Rich in vitamin A, beta-carotene, potassium and Vitamin C, peaches are known to have excellent anti oxidant properties and great for skin. More reason to enjoy this awesome peach cobbler scones, eh?
BTW, have you tried these Muesli pancakes with carmelized peaches? Bet you can eat them not only for breakfast, but also as a dessert option!
