Peach Shortcake

September this year came with that rush of fall. Cool weather, jeans and sweaters, and of course fall scented candles were burning away. However, just like weather in upstate New York does every year, we were hit with a few days of 90 degrees. Somehow fall candles do not have the same appeal when the air conditioning is blowing away :). Like summer, I seem to be having a hard time letting go too. Part of me still wants warm summer nights, campfires, and of course summer food. Lucky for me, September gave me a few extra days to enjoy my "summer" food before I delve into the soups and casseroles that seem to always define the fall season.

One of my favorite fruits has always been peaches. Sweet, messy and delicious. Besides eating them whole, my other favorite way to eat them is with shortcake. Here's my go to recipe...I promise you won't be able to get enough!

4 Cups flour
1/2 Cup sugar
1 1/2 Cup Milk
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 1/2 teaspoons almond flavoring

Bake 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes

6-8 Chopped
1/4 Cup sugar

Start by mixing the shortcake

 Plop a portion of your choice on your baking tin. I also use my trusty Silpat!


Bake at 350 for around 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your shortcake

 Wash your peaches

 Dice them up

Add your sugar

Mix it all together!

 Now add it to your freshly cooked shortcake and you are good to go!

 Whip cream or vanilla ice-cream always adds a nice touch as well

Happy Eating!
