Ingredients:
2 cups reduced-fat baking mix
1/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup fat-free milk
6 ripe peaches, cut into 1/2-inch slices (about 1 3/4 pounds) (about 4 cups)
1 cup fresh raspberries
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1 cup frozen fat-free whipped topping, thawed
Directions

Preheat the oven to 425° F.

Combine the baking mix, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, and milk in a large bowl until a soft dough forms.

Drop the dough, by heaping tablespoonfuls, onto a large ungreased baking sheet, making a total of 8 biscuits. Bake until the tops spring back when lightly pressed, 10 - 12 minutes. Transfer the shortcakes to a rack to cool slightly.
Meanwhile, combine the peaches, raspberries, the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and lemon zest in a large bowl. Let stand, gently stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes.

Split the shortcakes. Place the bottom halves of the shortcakes on plates; top each with 1/3 cup peach mixture and 1 tablespoon whipped topping. Place the tops of the shortcakes, cut-side down, over the fruit and garnish each with the remaining 1 tablespoon whipped topping.

Prep Time:  10 Minutes
Cook Time: 12 Minutes
Difficulty:  Easy
Yield:      8 servings

Per Serving: (1 shortcake with 1/3 cup peach mixture and 2 tablespoons whipped topping) 228 Cal (23% from Fat, 8% from Protein, 69% from Carb); 5 g Protein; 6 g Tot Fat; 2 g Sat Fat; 3 g Mono Fat; 41 g Carb; 3 g Fiber; 23 g Sugar; 94 mg Calcium; 1 mg Iron; 379 mg Sodium; 1 mg Cholesterol

Test Kitchen Tip: For the very best flavor, make sure to use perfectly ripe summer peaches. Otherwise, frozen thawed peaches will work here too. Just be sure to drain them well, and pat dry with paper towels before using.

As a Southern girl I ADORE Paula Deen and all her recipes;however my hips do not. I greatly appreciate the effort Bobby put into re-creating his Mother’s recipes. Please keep them coming!! I must say I still use Paula’s recipes. I can’t eat them as often as I would like or else I would live in the gym.
Thank you,
Nina Lazenby

Bobby,
This lighter peach shortcake sounds so good! I cannot wait to make it! But I bet it would be better if you made it for me!

It sure would be handy to have a print button near the recipe. Sounds good!

Great idea for the peach shortcakes.  I can’t wait to try it.  I have almost cooked my way through your entire “Take it Easy” book and have been so very pleased.  I have not been dissapointed with one recipe yet!

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?

Congrats Bobby. Loved the family picture miss you Paula on TV will be watching online. Jack is getting big. Looks like his mom but Matt aka moose has your face. Your eyes cheeks hair even falls to his face like yours except to the left. Good luck on your next venture. You give us other 60+ yr women strength to move on. Keep up the good work.
