  • For the Filling
  • 4 cups sliced peeled and pitted fresh ripe peaches about 6 large
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin spice or you could use a combo of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg a 3 - 2 - 1 ratio
  • A pinch of salt
  • For the Biscuit Topping
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons ¾ of a stick cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • ¼ cup boiling water
  • Fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, for serving, (optional)


  • Heat the oven to 425°F (218C)
    Prepare the Peaches: Toss the peaches with the sugar, lemon juice, cornstarch, spice, and salt in a 2-quart nonreactive baking dish (glass works really well here) and bake in the middle of the oven for 10 minutes.
  • Make the topping while the peaches cook: In the work bowl of your food processor, pulse together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt until blended. Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add water and pulse until just combined. (if you don't have a food processor, you can use your fingers or a pastry blender to mix in the butter and then add the water and stir to combine).
  • Remove the peaches from the oven and drop spoonfuls of the topping over the top. Bake in the middle of the oven until the topping is golden, about 25 minutes (the topping will spread as it cooks). Serve warm or at room temperature.


  1. Easily peel the peaches by dropping them into a pot of boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove to an ice bath. Allow the peaches to cool then peel the skins.
  2. Peel being removed from a fresh peach.
