Servings 6



  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 5 Tbsp cold butter, cubed
  • 1 cup cream


  • 3 ripe peaches
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil

Peach Glaze

  • 1/2 of one peach
  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • pinch salt


  • 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!
