The Lady’s Peach Shortcake The Lady’s Peach Shortcake

Servings: 12 servings
Cook Time: 20 min
Difficulty: Easy

Ingredients Add to grocery list

4 cups bisquick
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons melted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons almond flavoring

6 peaches
1 teaspoon Fruit Fresh (fruit preservative)
Splash warm water
1 1/2 cups sugar

Whipped cream:
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar

Vanilla Ice Cream
Mint sprigs





Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

To make the shortcakes, mix the bisquick, sugar, milk, butter, and almond flavoring in a medium size bowl and pour into 12 well greased muffin tins. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until done and remove from oven. Cool for 5 minutes and pop out of pans.

Peel, core, and slice the peaches. Immediately sprinkle with Fruit Fresh to prevent peaches from turning dark. Add a splash of warm water to the peaches to moisten. Stir the sugar into the peaches, cover, and refrigerate until ready to use.

In a large mixing bowl or mixer, combine the heavy cream and sugar, and whip until peaks start to form.

To serve, split the biscuit in 1/2 and place bottom 1/2 on a plate. Top with 1 scoop of vanilla ice cream, pour fresh peaches and syrup on top, and place top half of biscuit over ice cream and fruit. Ladle more fresh peaches on top and finish with a dollop of whipped cream. Garnish with a mint sprig.

I first made this for my family's traditional Sunday get-together & everyone loved it. So simple, yet elegant & tasty. I would recommend this for a summer or fall dessert, but it tastes wonderful anytime, of course!

This should be a 10 rating! Thank You Paula! This is the "old-time" shortcake my mother used to make. I would always try to make it and it must be the sugar and Paula's touch of magic that makes it taste like Mom's. You cook so much like my mother, I just love you, and love to hear your voice on TV. Brings back so many good memories. Everyone try this you will love it. Also good with strawberries! This is easy, too!!
