Peach Biscuits

What do you do with peaches you get from your parents when they have a whole barrel?  MAKE STUFF!  And right away.  I’ve made peach pie and a peach tart, but that’s pretty much just this pie with peaches instead of berries.  This time, I made breakfast.  I keep eating them.  I need to stop.  It’s almost dinner time.  Now I’ve spoiled my dinner; oh well!  More biscuits please!

Peach Biscuits | doomthings

Ingredients (adapted from babble.com):

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 large peach, pealed and cut into chunks

Directions:

  1. Combine flours, sugar, baking powder and salt.
  2. Cut in butter until mixture resembles course pea-sized crumbs.
  3. Stir vanilla into milk and add gradually to flour mixture.
  4. Stir in peach chunks until as evenly distributed as possible.

These biscuits are a little on the sweet side (I might reduce the sugar by a tablespoon next time) and are perfect for a summer breakfast.  My peach was a little small and I wish there were more peach chunks in each bite, but if you use a large peach, it should be fine.  Next time I may even use two peaches.  There’s no such thing as peach overload.
