I guess I drank the Kool-Aid.

For years after moving to Alabama, I enjoyed the South but never really identified myself as a Southerner. I bought cowboy boots, listened to Keith Urban, and picked up a preference for bourbon, all along thinking that I was merely a spectator enjoying the best of what Southern culture had to offer. Even after marrying and moving with my husband to the seriously deep-South town of Selma, AL, I still felt a little like a Yankee on an extended vacation.

Somewhere over the course of the past 10 years, I drank the Kool-Aid. I fell in love with sweet tea and grits and banana pudding. I grew accustomed to barefoot toddlers that called me “Ma’am” and spoke with a drawl. And I especially loved the warmth of the people, the significance of a supper table here, and the fact that this is a place where manners and kindness still matter.

Special News!

With that being said, I have big news to share with you: we’re building a house! For a while now, my husband and I have been planning and building our forever home. It has been a hugely intense project, but as we closer to moving in, I’m so proud and grateful to have found such a special corner of the world to settle down in. Over the coming months, I look forward to sharing more with you about our place and the exciting things to come, but for now, know that you’ll forever get a Southern flair in the recipes you find here because we are making a permanent stay out of our sweet home Alabama. Hooray!

Peaches and Cream Biscuits

On that same note, I have a seriously Southern treat to share with you today: peaches and cream biscuits. If the most Southern fruit (peaches) had a baby with the most Southern baked good (biscuits), and we drizzled said baby with an over-the-top frosting (as one does in the South), it would be these peaches and cream biscuits. Two layers of buttery biscuit dough filled with a cinnamon and brown sugar-spiced peach filling make up these breakfast treats, and I think you’ll agree that they make a fun and yummy twist on your run-of-the-mill breakfast. Let’s chat about how to make them!

Making the Biscuits

To prepare peaches and cream biscuits, we start with the filling. Sliced peaches are cooked in a frying pan with brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and salt. Once the butter has melted and the peaches are coated, remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool while you prep the biscuit dough.

In a large bowl, stir together your dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter to cut in chunks of ice cold butter until the mixture has pea-sized clumps throughout. Pour in the milk and stir until a shaggy dough comes together. Dump the mixture out onto a lightly floured counter and quickly work the dough together with your hands. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out into a large rectangle and arrange the peach filling onto half of the dough. Fold the second half of dough over the fruit and pinch the edges of dough together to seal in the filling. Transfer the stuffed biscuit to a pan and use a sharp knife to slice into squares. Bake in the preheated oven until the peaches and cream biscuits are golden brown.

Glazing the Biscuits

Once baked, you have the option to drizzle the biscuits with a cream cheese glaze. This is kinda messy and totally optional, but I think the tangy sweetness works well here. These biscuits are best served warm, so if you don’t plan to eat them immediately, hold off on the glaze. They’ll reheat nicely the next day in a toaster oven.

  • Author: Kate Wood
  • Prep Time: 15
  • Cook Time: 40
  • Total Time: 55 minutes
  • Yield: 12
  • Category: Breakfast

Ingredients

For the peaches:

  • 2 small peaches sliced in 1/8” slices (about about 215 gm or 11/4 cup of slices)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • ¾ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • pinch of salt

For the biscuits:

  • 3 cups (420 gm) all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup (50 gm) brown sugar
  • 21/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup (170 gm) unsalted butter, cold and diced
  • 11/4 cup (300 gm) milk (I use whole)
  • Extra milk and sugar for sprinkling, if desired

For the cream cheese glaze, if desired:

  • 2 ounces (60 gm) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • ½ cup (60 gm) powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

To prepare the peaches:

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a medium-sized pan over medium heat. Allow the butter to melt completely, stirring the ingredients to combine. Once the butter has melted pull the pan off the heat and allow to cool while you preheat the oven.

To prepare the biscuits:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Use a pastry cutter or the backs of two forks to cut in the butter until it has bene reduced to pea-sized clumps throughout. Add a cup of the milk and stir to bring the dough together, adding an additional tablespoon of milk as needed until a shaggy dough has formed. Dump the clumps of wet dough out on the counter and use your hands to bring it together. Pat the mixture out into a flat disk and use a rolling pin on your floured surface to roll the dough out into a 9”x12” rectangle. Dump the peaches mixture out on half of the dough and fold the other half over top of it, pinching the edges to seal in the fruit. Transfer the rectangle of folded dough to a sheet pan. Use a sharp knife to cut the dough into 12 biscuits. Brush the top of it with milk or cream and sprinkle with a couple of tablespoons of sugar. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20-22 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.

To prepare the cream cheese glaze:

  1. Cream the cream cheese and powdered sugar with a hand mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add the milk and vanilla and stir to combine. Drizzle over the biscuits and enjoy!

Creating the Perfect Muffin

My goal with these peach crumb muffin was to make a soft, buttery, and moist muffin that was golden on the outside and full of chunky bits of ripe peaches. I also wanted to make sure it had a beautiful round dome to rest all that delicious crumble on top of.

So like any self-respecting blogger, I enlisted the help of my two best friends: other bloggers and the internet. My friend Laura pointed me to a brilliant recipe that enlisted a sweet and salty brown sugar crumble to add some color and dimension to the muffins. I also learned from a hefty amount of research (high fives to my fellow food nerds!) that if you fill the muffin tins up to the tippy top and bake at a high temperature for the first portion of the bake, you can achieve that rounded muffin dome that I was looking for. I kept the batter for these peach crumb muffins pretty thick and sure enough, after a few test batches, we had a moist, domed muffin with bits of sweet summer fruit throughout. I was in heaven.

The muffins are still not as golden brown as I had hoped they would be. I think that with some modifications in the type of sugar and length of baking, I could have achieved more of what I wanted, but my primary concern was to keep the peach crumb muffins ultra moist. So I gave up on that hope. Still, the muffins turned out beautiful with bits of crumble sprinkled on top and the drippy glaze cascading down the sides. I mean, DROOL. Peach Crumb Muffins Recipe By The Wood and Spoon Blog by Kate Wood. These are moist, fluffy, vanilla butter muffins filled with chunks of fresh peaches.

Making the Muffins

To get started, move an oven rack to the upper third of the oven and preheat to a sweltering 400 degrees. Baking our muffins on the top rack will keep the bottoms from burning before we get a little tan up top first. Next, we make our crumble. This is is nothing more than stirring a few tablespoons of melted butter with some dry ingredients. SO EASY. Set aside the crumble while you stir up the muffins.

Add some sugar to the melted butter and then toss in a few eggs and some vanilla. We also add lemon zest because even though we’re making basic muffins we’re also kinda fancy, ok? Toss in the dry ingredients alternating with some room temperature milk, and finish it all off by folding in some itty bitty peach bits. You can even use frozen fruits if you want, but local friends, I’m sure you’ve already stocked up on the good stuff from Chilton County and The Peach Truck, AMIRITE? Line your muffin pan with paper liners and fill it up just below the rim of the liner. Yes, I know everything in you is saying “DON’T FILL IT UP MORE THAN 2/3 FULL!! IT WILL OVERFLOW!” I hear you, I get it, but let’s just try it, okay? If that oven is hot enough, this trick will work. Scouts honor.

Tips for Baking

Divide all that delicious crumble between the 12 muffins and then send the whole pan to the sauna. Once they’re in the oven,  close the door and decrease the heat to 375. We’ll bake at this temp for a few minutes, before letting them finish at a slightly lower degree. That initial hot bake is just long enough to set the edges of the muffin so that the insides and center can keep baking up, up, UP! If you know that you oven bakes a little cold, you can bump up the heat by 5 or 10 degrees.

Once the muffins are finished, they are moist, incredibly fragrant, and altogether perfect. That salty crumble tastes oh so good with the super sweet muffin, and each bite is speckled with a juicy burst of fruit. Another bonus is that these peach crumb muffins are super adaptable! Add a teaspoon of cinnamon, substitute fresh berries or nectarines, or top the whole thing with sweet sugared nuts. Just do how you do and enjoy the outcome.Peach Crumb Muffins Recipe By The Wood and Spoon Blog by Kate Wood. These are moist, fluffy, vanilla butter muffins filled with chunks of fresh peaches.

These peach crumb muffins are fluffy, moist, and domed muffins with a streusel crumb topping, a drizzled glaze, and juicy bits of fresh peaches!

  • Author: Kate
  • Prep Time: 20
  • Cook Time: 40
  • Total Time: 1 hour
  • Yield: 12
  • Category: Muffins

Ingredients

For the streusel:

  • 2/3 cup (85 gm) flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 11/2 tablespoons sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • ¼ cup (55 gm) unsalted butter, melted

For the muffin:

  • 1/2 cup (110 gm) unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 11/4 cup (250 gm) sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2 cups (260 gm) flour
  • 21/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup (120 mL) milk, room temperature
  • 2 cups (280 gm) small diced peaches

For the glaze (optional):

  • 1/2 cup (60 gm) confectioner’s sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 11/2 teaspoons of milk

Instructions

To make the streusel:

  1. Combine the flour, brown sugar, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium sized bowl. Stir in the butter until clumps form. Set aside while you make your muffins.

To make the muffins:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and move one rack to the upper third of the oven, leaving enough room for the muffin pan up top. Line a 12 compartment muffin tin with liners and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir the butter and sugar until well combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, stirring after each addition. Add the vanilla and lemon zest, stirring until combined.
  3. In a separate, smaller bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add half of the dry ingredients to the butter and egg mixture, stirring until combined. Add the milk, stir, and then add the remaining dry ingredients. Stir to combine. Fold in the peaches, being careful to not overwork the batter.
  4. Divide the muffin batter amongst the 12 muffin liners. Depending on your liners, you may have a hair too much batter. Just fill as much as you feel comfortable- they will be FULL. Don’t worry! Divide the streusel among the 12 muffins, sprinkling on top.
  5. Put the muffin pan on the top rack and immediately decrease the heat to 375. Bake at this temperature for 10 minutes, then decrease the heat to 350 and bake for an additional 22-25 minutes, or until the muffins are set and a toothpick inserted comes out clean. The muffins should be starting to bronze around the edges. Allow to cool slightly before topping with the glaze.

To make the glaze:

  1. Whisk together all three ingredients. Drizzle over top of slightly cooled muffins.

Notes

If you know your oven cooks a bit cool, increase the heat by 5-10 degrees for the initial bake. You want to keep the pan from overflowing.
