  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • cup butter, cut into pieces

  • ½ cup milk

  • ½ cup sugar

  • ¼ cup water

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • 6 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced or two 16-ounce packages frozen peach slices (6 cups)

  • Thyme sprigs


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. For biscuits, in a medium bowl stir together the first five ingredients (through salt). Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Add milk all at once. Using a fork, stir just until mixture is moistened.

  2. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough by folding and gently pressing it just until dough holds together. Pat or lightly roll dough into a 3/4inch thick circle. Cut dough into 12 triangles.

  3. For filling, in a large saucepan combine the 1/2 cup sugar, the water, and cornstarch. Add peaches. Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened and bubbly.

  4. Transfer hot filling to a 2-qt. square baking dish. Arrange dough triangles on top of filling.

  5. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuit topping is golden brown. Serve warm topped with thyme sprigs.
