Strawberry Peach Shortcake

Strawberry Peach Shortcake

 

We visited my parent's house this past weekend and I had a strawberry shortcake. It brought back loads of memories from the summers growing up. I never remember really being fond of strawberry shortcake, but that was our dessert on hot days. It was so refreshing and satisfying when I had it Sunday. My taste buds have changed a bit since my childhood, which is good otherwise I would be serving up ketchup on all my baked goods.

Okay, I still love ketchup just as much. Guilty.

I swear I had a beautiful layer of fruit, whipped cream, and biscuit. I also swear it was perfectly garnished with a fresh slice of peach and a strawberry. However, my biscuit that I heated was a bit warmer that I thought. Here's a tip, when wanting to take beautiful pictures with whipped cream and biscuits, do not warm the biscuit. Oh well, it's now just a little messy. Still tastes amazing though. I dug into the shortcake a bit to show off the peaches and strawberries.

I don't know about my readers, but I love for my fruit to have a sweet syrup that my biscuit can soak up. I happen to have strawberries and peaches. So, I sliced up my peaches and strawberries, sprinkled some cinnamon and sugar and let it sit.

Next, I worked on some buttermilk biscuits. I've never really made biscuits before, which is nuts considering my husband absolutely loves them. He loves any kind of biscuit or roll. I intend on perfecting some buttermilk biscuits. The first tip I found after I made these, was to do a tri-fold with the dough. Notice how I said after I made the first biscuits, the ones in these photos are those. I made another batch of biscuits today and did the tri-fold three times and roll out the dough. When they were finished, I could see layers that were made with the fold.

Look at that fruit and juice. Yum, I think I'll have to go out and make myself another shortcake. I'll share it with the baby, that will make me feel better about eating this late.

Ingredients
  

Buttermilk Biscuits

Fruit Topping

  • 1 pint of strawberries , washed, hulled, and sliced
  • 3 - 4 peaches , pitted and sliced
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Garnish

  • Whipped Topping

Instructions

Biscuits

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line baking pan with parchment paper. Place butter in the freezer.
  • In a large bowl, add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Mix with your fingers.
  • Remove the butter from the freezer and grate with a cheese grater. Once a small pile of butter forms, mix it into the flour so the butter doesn't clump up. Continue grating the butter until the stick is blended into the flour.
  • Place the entire bowl into the fridge so the butter firms up. I put mine in for about 15 minutes.
  • Make a hole into the center of the flour and pour the buttermilk in it.
  • Stir the mixture slowly and mix just until the flour is incorporated. It's important to not over mix the biscuits.
  • Turn the dough out onto a clean, floured surface. Pat the dough out into a rectangle and do the tri-fold. Repeat two more times.
  • Roll out the dough out to ½ inch thickness and cut with a circle cutter or a glass.
  • Place the biscuits onto the parchment paper and coat the tops of the biscuits with the buttermilk.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.

Fruit Topping

  • Place the fruit into a medium bowl with the sugar and cinnamon. Stir until the fruit is covered with the sugar. Refrigerate for an hour.

Assemble

  • Cut the biscuit in half. If the biscuit is cooled, warm the biscuit for 25 seconds.
  • Place some fruit and its syrup on top of the bottom biscuit.
  • Spoon some cool whip over top of the fruit.
  • Place top of biscuit on the cool whip.
  • Eat up.
