Description

So much easier to make than regular biscuits, these ginger and peach drop biscuits are the essence of summer. They’re flavored with diced peaches and a few simple ingredients that could easily make them the perfect biscuit!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter (one stick)
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup candied crystallized ginger
  • 1 cup diced peach (about 1 large peach)
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar


Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, salt, and granulated sugar. Whisk to combine. Slice the cold butter into 1/2-inch pieces and work into the dry ingredients using fingers or a pastry cutter. Cut the butter into the mixture until it looks like coarse crumbs no larger than the size of a pea.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the milk, vanilla, and egg. Whisk until smooth and pour into the dry ingredients.
  4. Dice the candied ginger and add to the mixture along with the diced peach.
  5. Mix the ingredients with a fork to create a shaggy wet dough.
  6. Using a cookie scoop or measuring cup, scoop and drop 1/2 cup biscuits on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush the tops with heavy cream and sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  7. Bake in preheated oven until the biscuits are golden, 12-15 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and cool 10 minutes before serving.
