Biscuits & Peaches

Since I wasn't really in the mood to make much, but wanted to snack I put this together. It's something of a peach cobbler, but not really...

The topping is nice and should have been sweeter taking into account that I didn't have a real sauce for the peaches. A nice brown sugar sauce would have been wonderful and if I find anything that resembles nice peaches in the market I will make it this year, a real peach cobbler that is, since it has always been something our family would eat in the early winter. The biscuit dough is pretty versatile so it can be used for other recipes.

biscuit batter:
1 can of halved peaches in light syrup
2 cups flour
4 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup melted butter
2 eggs, slightly beaten into the milk
small handful of thinly sliced almonds

2 or 3 spoons of coarse sugar
a few sprinkles of cinnamon
egg wash (I didn't)

Sift together all of the dry ingredients, excluding the almonds.

Cut in the butter using a food processor or pastry cutter, a fork and knife will work fine too. Do this until youhave coarse crumbs. Combine milk and eggs and then add to dry mixture, stirring just until moistened.

Slice the peaches to your desired thickness and put on the bottom of your pan.

Spoon the dough on top of the peaches.

Sprinkle with sugar, ground cinnamon and almonds, and if you like an egg white or entire egg wash would give it some shine and a bit more color.

Bake at 400 for 30 minutes or until golden brown.

  16. My wife hates the way i do it, which i learned in my bachelor days, which is using a can of bisquets. must admit yours looks much better than mine.

  17. Looked like a tasty dessert to me in spite of the shortcomings you mentioned, but then I do just love peaches. Thanks for the idea -- would be great for a quick fix!

  18. This looks SO good - just love peaches, too. Thanks!

  19. Mmmm...great way to serve up peaches, thanks!

  20. Hmm... this looks yummy...

  21. I was browsing the foodie blog roll tonight and came across your blog! This recipe looks fabulous!

  22. Looks good! I have a "cheater" recipe similar where I use Bisquick reduced fat - makes a nice, quick fruit dessert and the way I look at it is, fruit is healthy so it's better than some desserts! :)

  23. Looks fabulous, but these [hot!] days I seek recipes that don't need cooking in the oven.

  24. This looks very tasty and my eye is eating up the very first photo.


~ welcome! what say you? =D ~
