Scrumptious Flaky Peach Biscuits

This scrumptious flaky peach biscuits recipe is to die for. The biscuits are perfectly flaky, absolutely flavourful, slightly sweet, and so hard to resist.

My son is in love with my scrumptious flaky peach biscuits and I am sure you will be too when you try them. We went to a coffee shop the other day and he saw some peach scones and wanted to try them. It turned out they were not the best, so I had to oblige by making him some. They are the best fruit snack you will make and enjoy.

The Ingredients for Peach Biscuits

A tray full of delicious but simple ingredients that are found in every pantry. Put them together and you get the best treat ever!

Ingredients

This is what you will need to make these flaky delicious peach biscuits:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg (or allspice)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream (or 10% cream)
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup peaches (2 fresh peaches)

Let’s start by getting the dry ingredients mixed up. In a large bowl, add the all-purpose flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg (or allspice), and sugar. Mix everything together so that everything is evenly distributed.

Now we can add the butter. I like to keep my butter in the fridge until I am ready to use it. The harder the butter, the flakier the biscuits. Remove the butter from the fridge and either grate it directly into the bowl of flour or cut it into cubes and drop it into the flour. I find grating is easier and gives a more even distribution. Combine the flour and butter well, making sure not to overwork the butter. We don’t want the butter to start melting.

If you are grating the butter, drop the whole chunk into the flour and coat it with the flour before you grate it. It allows for an easier grip and faster grating time.

Set the flour aside and in another bowl or measuring cup, combine the liquid ingredients. Whip the egg, add the sour cream, then the cream, then the almond extract and mix everything together. If you don’t want to use the cream and sour cream, you can replace it with 1 cup of buttermilk instead.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and mix using your hands. The idea is to just combine the dry and wet to form a rough crumbly dough. You don’t want to overwork the dough. The more you work the dough, the less the biscuits will rise when they bake.

Wash and chop the peaches into bite size pieces – about 1/2 an inch. Discard the pits. Once you have the dough ready, sprinkle some flour on a clean counter and mix in the peaches. Again, do not over work the dough. Then form a circular shape with the dough. It doesn’t have to be perfectly even circle. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife cut it into 8 triangular pieces.

I like big tea biscuits that can be enjoyed for breakfast, so I only make 8, but you can cut them into smaller pieces or even make them into individual square shapes. It’s all up to an individuals liking.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and gently place the biscuits onto the tray. I like to put my tray in the freezer for a few minutes just to ensure that the butter is really hard again. I find the harder the butter, the flakier the end result. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Remove the baking tray from the freezer and place it directly into the hot oven. Bake for about 25-30 minutes – or until you see the biscuits brown.

Remove from the oven and allow them to cool on the tray for a couple of minutes before placing them on a cookie rack to cool completely. Enjoy fresh with my home made butter or jam. Store them in the fridge in an air tight container for up to 3 days.
