step-by-step directions
  • For the Yogurt Scratch Biscuits: Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda together in the work bowl of a food processor, and pulse until combined. Add the butter, and pulse it a few more times, until the butter is thoroughly cut into the flour mixture.
  • Add the yogurt and pulse the mixture a couple more times to stir it in, just until the mixture forms into a cohesive whole Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead it 10 times, no more, no less. If the dough is too sticky, add a little flour, though the dough should be somewhat sticky. 
  • Press the dough to a 3/4-inch thickness and cut into rounds using a glass or biscuit cutter, pressing straight down without twisting.
  • Place biscuits on an ungreased parchment covered sheetpan. Reshape the remaining dough and cut into biscuits. Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, depending on your biscuit size, or until the biscuits are a light golden brown.
  • For the Whipped Cream: Put a large bowl into the freezer for the whipped cream.
  • Take out the bowl as the biscuits are baking and pour the whipping cream in the bowl and beat with the hand held mixer.
  • When it reaches the desired consistancy done add the sugar and vanilla extract.
  • For the Peaches: Slice up peaches and season with salt and pepper. Toss in a bowl with a splash of balsamic vinegar to taste.
  • When biscuits are done take them out of the oven and cut them in half. Top biscuits with dressed peaches and whipped cream.
