Ingredients

Biscuits

  •  2 cups All Purpose Flour 
  • 1 tablespoon Baking Powder 
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt 
  • 1/2 cup Shortening 
  • 3/4 cup Milk
  • Grilled Peaches 3-4 Brandt Peaches 1 tablespoon oil
  • Whipped Cream chopped Wonderful Pistachios

Raspberry Sauce

  • 6 ounces Driscoll's Raspberries 
  • 1/4 cup Sugar 
  • 1/4 cup Water

Instructions

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Make the Biscuits

1. In a large mixing bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt.


2. Cut in shortening with a fork (or pastry blender) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.


3. Pour milk into flour mixture while stirring with a fork.


4. Mix until dough is soft, moist and pulls away from the side of the bowl.


5. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.

6. Roll dough out, fold in half and roll out once again.

7. Roll into a 1/2 inch thick sheet and cut with a floured biscuit cutter (or round cookie cutter). Press together unused dough and repeat rolling and cutting until all dough is used up.

Tip: Do not twist cutter when cutting; this crimps the edges of the biscuit and impedes its rise.


8. Place the biscuits on a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly greased.

9. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.


10. Once baked, removed from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

For the raspberry sauce

1. Pour all the ingredients in a small pot.


2. Heat over medium heat.


3. Using a wooden spoon mash the Driscoll's Raspberries while constantly stirring the sauce.


4. Mix until the sauce thickens, it takes about 20 minutes.


5. Once the sauce is made, strain it to remove all the seeds and transfer into a serving dish of your choice.

Now, it's time to start grilling the peaches.


1. Heat the grill to medium-high, then lightly oil.


2. Cut the peaches into slices of the thickness of your choice and grill until lightly charred, this will take about 1-2 minutes.


3. You want the grill marks.


4. Transfer to a bowl or dish and let cool before serving.

Set it up.

Cut the biscuits in half. Layer some grilled peaches, top with light whipped cream and the other half of the biscuit. Add some more light whipped cream, a drizzle of raspberry sauce and chopped Wonderful Pistachios and an extra texture and nutty flavor.
