Servings: 6 servings
Author: Jennifer Locklin

Ingredients

  • 4 cups fresh peaches peeled, pitted & sliced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 1/3 cups Bisquick Original baking mix
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened
  • Coarse sugar optional

Instructions

  • Place sliced peaches in a medium bowl and stir in 1/2 cup sugar. Stir well and cover with plastic wrap. Place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  • Preheat oven to 425º.
  • In a medium bowl, combine Bisquick, milk, 3 tablespoons sugar and butter. Stir with a wooden spoon just until everything is incorporated and a soft dough forms.
  • Scoop out dough onto an ungreased baking sheet, making about 6 drop biscuits. Sprinkle with coarse sugar, if desired.
  • Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until shortcakes are golden brown. Remove from oven and cool for about 5 minutes on the pan.
  • Remove from pan with a spatula onto serving plates.
  • Cut the shortcakes in half to make a top and a bottom. Spoon a generous portion of sweetened peaches over the shortcake bottoms. Cover with shortcake tops.
  • Serve with fresh whipped cream or ice cream.
