Guest Post: Roasted Peach Biscuit Sliders

Vanilla Spice Biscuits
(makes 8)
Recipe adapted from Take A Megabite’s Mom
2/3 cup milk
1 egg
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour, or all-purpose
4 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1/2 t cream of tarter
2 T sugar
1/4 t nutmeg
1 vanilla bean*
1 stick (8 T) butter, cold and cut into squares

Preheat the oven to 400º F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Whisk together the egg and the milk in a small bowl. Set aside.

Whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt, cream of tarter, sugar, nutmeg, and the seeds from a scraped vanilla bean. Cut the cold butter into the dry ingredients using two forks or a pastry blender until there are no pieces bigger than a pea.

Pour the milk mixture over the flour mixture. Stir gently with a wooden spoon. Turn the bowl over on a lightly floured surface. Knead a little if the flour is trying to jump ship. Add more flour if necessary.

Pat into an inch high dough round an cut out using a biscuit cutter, placing the biscuits on the prepared baking sheets. Use up all the dough, even if you have to have one silly-shaped biscuit hanging out in the middle.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the tops are golden. Serve topped with roasted peaches slider-style!

*If you don’t have a vanilla bean handy simply add a teaspoon of vanilla extract to the wet ingredients!
Roasted Peaches (makes 8 peach patties)
2 peaches

juice from 1 large or 2 small lemons

2 T sugar
4+ oz. goat cheese
1/4 cup honey, for drizzling
1/4 cup chopped walnuts, for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 425F. Cut each peach in half, and remove the pit. Slice each half into two “patties”horizontally. Arrange slices in a single layer in a baking dish. Toss peaches with lemon juice and sugar. Roast until peaches are tender, 20-25 minutes, flipping party way through cook time.

Serve each peach “patty” on vanilla spice biscuit with crumbled goat cheese, honey, and walnuts. Eat two immediately.

P.s. Feel free to use as many peaches as you want. This recipe is totally open to adaptation. [/recipe]
