Peaches Foster Shortcake

COOK TIME

Take advantage of a sale on fresh peaches and cook 'em up for this quick version of Peaches Foster Shortcake. It takes no time to whip up this fresh dessert that tastes like a kiss of summer.

What You'll Need:
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1 1/2 pounds ripe fresh peaches, sliced (about 2-1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup rum or orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 6 large biscuits (see Note)
  • 1 cup whipped cream
What To Do:
  1. In a large skillet, heat brown sugar and butter until bubbly, stirring constantly. Add peaches and stir gently until peaches just begin to feel tender, about 5 minutes.
     
  2. In a cup, combine rum and cornstarch; stir mixture into peaches. Cook and stir until clear and thickened, about 2 minutes.
     
  3. Place 1 biscuit on each of 6 dessert plates. Split biscuits crosswise and spoon half the peach mixture evenly over the bottoms. Replace the biscuit tops and spoon the remaining peach filling over them. Top with a dollop of whipped cream. Serve immediately.

 

Note
  • Use prepared refrigerated biscuits, or make your own by mixing 2 cups flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1-1/4 cups heavy cream. Knead and divide into 6 balls. On a cookie sheet, pat each to form a 2-1/2- to 3-inch round. Bake in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. until tops are golden, 15 to 18 minutes.
