Simple Peach Shortcake
Peaches are a summertime staple in our household. We picked up 50 POUNDS of peaches from The Peach Truck when we were in Nashville at the beginning of June. Yes, 50. We've been eating peaches non-stop ever since. :) Believe it or not, I haven't had to throw a single peach away! Almost an entire month later, I still have about 10 peaches left and not a single one is in bad shape. Sure, they are a bit more wrinkle-y than a few weeks ago, but they are still as juicy and flavorful as ever.
Lucky for all of you, The Peach Truck is on their "Freestone Peach Tour" right now in which they are visiting a number of small towns through-out Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee! You can check the calendar here to see if they are going to be in your neck of the woods anytime soon. Here are a few dates/locations that might interest you:

Since I've been making a peach version of just about every recipe known to man lately, I thought I would share one of my favorites. Just 4 ingredients and 5 minutes will land you with a perfect summer dessert - great for a quick weekend get-together, family cookout, or just for you. :)
Simple Peach Shortcake
- (1) Peach Truck peach
- (1) Trader Joe's Shortcake Biscuit - Feel free to make homemade biscuits if you have the time! I just stumbled upon these in the baked goods section and decided to give them a shot.
- 1/4 cup Organic Heavy Whipping Cream
- 1/2 tsp sugar
Wash and slice peach. Place in a bowl with ~1/2 tsp sugar. Stir and let sit.
Cut shortcake biscuit in half. (I like mine warmed and a bit crunchy, so I placed it in the toaster oven for a few minutes.)
Using hand or electric mixer, whip ~1/4 cup organic heavy whipping cream until peaks form. (Feel free to add a bit of sugar or vanilla if you prefer. I like my whipped cream un-sweetened.)
Assemble. Give peach/sugar mixture one last stir. Spread onto bottom half of toasted biscuit. Top with fresh whipped cream and upper half of biscuit.
