To make the shortcake dough, combine flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment. On low speed, add cubed butter and cold cream until dough has formed together. Do not overmix! You want a light a fluffy shortcake!
Remove dough from mixing bowl and wrap with plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes.
Next, we’re gonna remove the skin on the peaches. Peaches must be ripe for this process to work.
Boil some water in a medium to large pot. Have another bowl of ice water standing by. Once the water is at a rapid boil, place the peaches in there for about 1 minute.. Remove and immediately place in ice water. Let it cool down for a minute or two in there and the remove. Skin should slide off. Cut peaches in half, remove pit and place in a bowl. Cover peaches in olive oil.
Preheat your grill or grill pan to high. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C).
Roll out dough to ½ “ thickness and punch out with your favorite cookie cutter. Place shortcakes on a cookie tray fitted with parchment paper and chill in the freezer for 10 min.
Once grill is heated, spray lightly with cooking spray and place peaches on, cut side down. Leave for 3-4 minutes to get some nice grill marks on the peaches. Flip over and grill the opposite side for another minute or two. Remove and set aside.
Lightly brush your shortcakes with some cream and then bake for 25 minutes.
To make peach glaze, mix together brown sugar, salt, and cornstarch and set aside.
Chop up one half of a grilled peach and mix with brown sugar mixture and water.
Cook in a non-stick skillet until thick and gooey, about 5 minutes.
Now, assemble by slicing grilled peaches, placing them on top OR on a cut open shortcake. Finish by drizzling a little peach glaze and ENJOY!
Optional: Top with your favorite ice cream or whipped cream!
