Peach Drop Biscuits

Drop Biscuit experiment number two, no wait? Number three? First there was Goat Cheese Drop Biscuits. Second Blueberry Drop Biscuits and now Peach Drop Biscuits. Of the three this has to be the most aromatic of them all. You can smell the ginger and cinnamon the minute the batter is stirred together. It really fills the house with warm baking aromas when it is in the oven. I loved the little specks of cinnamon in the biscuit, really pretty. The ginger and cinnamon were great with the peaches too. I used a firm under ripe white peach. White peaches were a better deal at the store. In my humble opinion it was a little sweeter than the yellow peaches I have had in the past.

About now you must be wondering why does this girl keep making only two biscuits? Well...the simple answer is I will eat too many biscuits if I cook more! So if you are cooking for the family just double, triple or quadruple the recipe. I know the base recipe works that way. The only ingredient I would be careful with is the ginger. I do plan to make a large batch to share with my family soon. I will let you know about the ginger amount then. That being said there is not one ingredient in the recipe that over powers the others. It is really well balanced. The texture is a little more cake like than the other recipes, but that is not a bad thing. I really enjoyed this experiment too. I can't wait to try it with yellow peaches next. Ed Lester Farms has more and more peaches every time I visit. I see a peach pie in my future too.

Peach Drop Biscuits
Makes 2 biscuits


1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, grated
2 Tbsp. + 1-1/2 tsp. milk (2% works fine)
4 tsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt (table salt not kosher)
4 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 to 1/3 cup fresh peaches, diced (I used a white peach)


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Combine liquid ingredients, ginger, milk, oil and set aside. Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and cinnamon. Add peaches and toss in the flour. Add oil and milk mixture. Stir until just combined. Drop large spoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet, forming 2 biscuits. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown.
