These peach drop biscuits made with freshly milled flour are the perfect summer treat!
Peach season has come to an end on the homestead. While we froze most of them for our daily kefir smoothies, I wanted to save one for these tasty little biscuits.
There are many different ways to use up those summer peaches. I made a sourdough peach cobbler recently, as well. It was so good, that I decided to take that idea and make it into a biscuit.
Normally, I roll out my biscuit dough and cut out the biscuits, but, with this recipe, I wanted a more moist and light biscuit, so, I made drop biscuits. Drop biscuit dough is a bit more hydrated yielding a very moist end product.
For this recipe, I am using freshly milled hard white wheat. Soft white wheat would work great, as well!
If you don’t grind your own flour, store bought whole grain flour or even an all purpose flour will work just fine in this recipe.
For this recipe you will need:
- Olive Oil
- Baking Powder
- Fresh, Ripe Peaches
These come together so quickly and easily. They are perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Not sticky sweet, they pair well with savory dishes as well as sweet.
When making a recipe as simple as this, the quality of your ingredients is very important. Having these high quality ingredients makes for an even better biscuit!
To make these, preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder. Mix well. Add the oil and mix until crumbly.
Peel and chop the peach in small pieces. If using very small peaches, use 2. My peach yielded approximately 3/4 cup of fruit once chopped.
Add the honey, peaches, and milk.
Mix just until it comes together. Do not over mix as this will make a tough biscuit.
Using a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, scoop out onto a greased baking sheet.
This recipe will make 8-10 depending on the size of your scoop. I use a large scoop and get 8 biscuits from this recipe.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
Transfer to a cooling rack.
Eat right away with butter or allow to cool completely and freeze for later use.
I hope you will give these a try before all the peaches are gone!
See you soon!
