When life gives you unannounced guests, you grill the peaches and stuff ‘em inside a biscuit. With some whipped cream on top.
And as you’re making those peaches, you have to sing, “Last minute guests, what ‘cha gonna do, what ‘cha gonna do when they come for you…”.
I swear on my spatulas, I sang that song the entire time that I was making these.
Why peaches, you ask? ‘Cause I didn’t have any strawberries.
Well, I had some, but that’s baby girl’s snack – can’t go there.
And the grill was already fired up.
I am just glad that I made a couple extras because without them I wouldn’t have a post today.
Or, I would have a post, but without these shortcakes. Not good. These shortcakes really deserve their own post.
- 4 peaches, washed, sliced (about 8 slices per peach)
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar, or to taste
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar, or to taste
- 2⅓ cups Bisquick mix
- ⅔ cup milk
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- Drizzle peaches with balsamic vinegar and sprinkle with brown sugar; let sit for 30 minutes. In the meantime, preheat the grill.
- Brush grill with a bit of oil.
- Place peach-slices on the grill. Grill for 5 minutes then turn over and grill for another minute or two, or until soft.
- Remove and let them cool to room temperature.
- Preheat oven to 425.
- Prepare the biscuits by combining all the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix until a soft dough forms.
- Drop 10 spoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 12 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let cool.
- Meanwhile prepare the whipped cream by combining together the heavy whipping cream, vanilla, and sugar.
- Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- When chilled, beat the mixture until stiff peaks form.
- Place 3 to 4 slices of grilled peaches on the bottom half of the biscuit, top with a spoonful of whipped cream, and cover with the top half of the biscuit.
- Serve immediately or put the cakes in the refrigerator until ready to use.
