Batali's Boys Peach Shortcake
Yogurt Scratch Biscuits:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 7 tablespoons cold butter (cut into cubes)
  • 1 1/4 cups Greek yogurt
Whipped Cream:
  • 2 pints heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
To Serve:
  • 8 peaches (sliced)
  • splash of balsamic vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • For the Yogurt Scratch Biscuits: Preheat the oven to 450ºF.
  • 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 a parchment-lined baking sheet. 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 a hand held mixer. When done add the sugar and vanilla extract.
  • To Serve: 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.
