Recipe: Peach Biscuits

Peaches are in season here in PA and what better way to make use of abundant stone fruit than to bake yummy things like Peach Biscuits.  These are essentially like scones, but I took a page from one of my favorite brunch spots, Morning Glory, and baked my biscuits in a pan.  That way there was no need to roll them out and get flour everywhere.

2 Cups Flour
4 Teaspoons Baking Powder
3/4 Teaspoon Salt
1/3 Cup Sugar
6 Tablespoons Butter (I used vegan butter)
1 Cup Mike (I used Soy Milk)
1 Egg
1 Cup Fresh Chopped Peaches

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Combine flour, baking soda, salt and sugar in a bowl and mix well. 

In another bowl beat egg and milk together, set aside. 

Using a pastry mixer or a fork cut butter into the dry ingredients.  Much like pie crust you will want to keep your butter chilled until you are ready to use it.  Using cold butter will keep your biscuits flaky. 

One the butter is well combined at the milk and egg mixture and the peaches.  

Mix till the dry and wet ingredients are well combined.  Your dough will be a bit lumpy.  

Spread your dough into a greased baking pan and place in oven at 375 for about 15-20 minuets.  The edges and top of your biscuits should be a golden color.  

Let biscuits cool for a few minuets.  Cut into squares and enjoy.
