Shortcake Biscuits with Peach Filling Recipe

One of my favorite things about Summer is the abundance of fresh, local fruit.  I miss the days when we drove up to the family farm and picked peaches from the orchid.  Daddy grew several different varieties, all so good it was hard to pick a favorite.  Peach shortcake remains one of my favorite summertime desserts.  Easy to prepare and perfect for a summer supper.

Let’s start with making the biscuits. You can use the biscuits for all sorts of treats but I always make a batch as soon as the Georgia peaches arrive at Davis produce. As for the peaches, nothing beats fresh from Georgia! I like mine sweet and dripping with juice. My husband, Jim loves them more on the tart and crisp side. Either way, they are delicious.

Instructions

Notes

TO MAKE PEACH SHORTCAKE:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, add 1 pint of heavy cream, 2-3 TBSP of powdered sugar, and 1 tsp of vanilla extract.  Use the whisk attachment and mix cream until stiff peaks form.
  2. If biscuits were made ahead, microwave for about 10-15 seconds, or until biscuits are just warm.
  3. Cut biscuit in half and on the bottom portion, add peaches and some of the peach juice.  Top with whip cream and add the top portion of the biscuit.

NOTES: 

  • Peaches are best prepared no more than 2 hours prior to serving.  
  • Use ripe peaches.
  • The Amaretto is optional, but it does add a nice layer of flavor.

    I’m a GA peach myself. There is nothing to compare to the sweetness of plucking a perfect peach right from the tree. I always felt it was the earths little birthday (September) present to me. They will always taste like home for me.
