Just as peach season is about to wrap up I stumbled across a recipe that I knew I absolutely had to make. To know me is to know and understand just how much I love bread, biscuits, muffins, carbs, soft pretzels, scones, and did I mention carbs. I do realize that sooner than later my body is going to require me to slow down on the carbs and introduce more gluten free and even grain free foods into my diet. I feel it happening. Until then, let’s talk about these Southern Peach Biscuits from Wood & Spoon. Kate from Wood & Spoon posted these incredible biscuits on her Instagram last week and I had been thinking about them all weekend so I tried my hand at them and with a few adjustments, I am in love!
This is a southern recipe and being raised in Upstate NY and even now living in Maryland, I don’t see too many fruit & biscuits desserts so this was a true treat for me.
Speaking of the south, southern living (not the magazine) has been on my mind a lot lately. There’s something about a slow paced, warm, and charming life that inspires me beyond my New York roots. During a recent trip to Martha’s Vineyard I met a woman who lives in Savannah Georgia. It only took a few minutes before she became, my Aunt from Savannah. She is funny, sweet as pie, wise, and can make the best margarita ever; sweet & strong and you can’t drink more than 2!
Before the year is up I plan on visiting some friends who live in the south and maybe even my new Auntie in Savannah. I’ve learned that life is generous and never stop exploring because what you’re seeking just might be seeking you.
Let’s get into these peach biscuits. A few tips:
- The recipe calls for fresh peaches. If you can’t eat fresh fruit, canned peaches will work fine, just be sure to drain the juice.
- I use buttermilk for the biscuits but whole milk will work great too
- Your butter and milk need to be ice cold.
- Take your time and enjoy
