  • 9 fresh peaches

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 ⅓ cups all-purpose flour

  • 3 tablespoons white sugar

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ cup butter, chilled

  • cup buttermilk

  • 2 teaspoons white sugar

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Submerge peaches in boiling water for about 1 minute. The amount of time required to make the skin easy to peel varies with the degree of ripeness: if really ripe, it may take less time. Remove peaches with a slotted spoon, and run cold water on them. Slip off skins.

  3. Cut peaches into wedges, and place in either a deep 10-inch pie plate or a 2-inch-deep 2-quart baking dish. Toss peaches with lemon juice and 1/2 cup sugar. Cover dish with foil.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven 15 minutes, or until peaches are hot and bubbly.

  5. Whisk together flour, 3 tablespoons sugar, baking powder, and baking soda. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles small peas. Pour buttermilk over top, and toss with a fork until the mixture clumps together.

  6. Remove hot peaches from oven, uncover, and drop heaping tablespoons of dough over peaches. In a small cup, mix 2 teaspoons sugar and nutmeg. Sprinkle over biscuits.

  7. Bake until biscuits are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Set dish on wire rack to cool 10 to 15 minutes before serving.
