I've enjoyed making this recipe over the years because I love the texture and freshness of the peaches when baked a short time in the oven before the topping is added. The pecans add a special touch to this dessert. It's fresh peach season so make this and enjoy!
Filling: 5 cups of sliced fresh peaches
3Tbsp. sugar 1 Tbsp. lemon juice
¼ tsp. nutmeg
Biscuit topping: 1 cup flour
2 Tbsp. sugar 1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt ¼ tsp. baking soda
3 Tbsp. cold butter
2/3 cup buttermilk ¼ cup pecans
2 Tbsp. sugar
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Toss peaches with sugar, lemon juice and nutmeg. Place in a 2 qt. shallow baking dish. Bake for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, for topping, combine flour, 2 Tbsp. sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda. Cut in the butter until small particles are formed. Stir in buttermilk and nuts. Drop by large tablespoons onto peach mixture. Sprinkle with remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until biscuits are golden. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
