The Lady’s Peach Shortcake
Shortcakes: 4 cups bisquick 1/2 cup sugar 1 1/2 cup milk 2 tablespoons melted butter 1 1/2 teaspoons almond flavoring
Peaches: 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
Toppings: 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.
NOTES: Peaches are healthy! According to thenibble.com , " Peaches are a good source of vitamins A, B and C. A medium peach contains only 37 calories." Movin' to the country, Gonna eat a lot of peaches! \m/
