Ready In:




  • Heat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl add the peaches, bourbon, 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon and mix well to coat the peaches evenly; set aside.
  • Prepare the dumplings: Into a bowl sift together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter into small pieces. Add it to the flour mixture and cut it in with a pastry blender or your hands until the mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs. Pour in the cream and mix just until the dough comes together. Don't overwork; the dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.
  • In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-low heat, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Add the peaches and cook gently until heated through, about 5 minutes. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls over the warm peaches. There can be gaps, the dough will puff up and spread out as it bakes. Brush the top with some heavy cream and sprinkle with some sugar; put it into the oven on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Cook for 40 to 45 minutes until the top is browned and the fruit is bubbling.

I am a busy mom of 3, who after 15 years of marriage is finally getting on top of the cooking in the house. My husband has better cooking skills than me, but that's not anything I'm proud of! My kids are 12, 10, and 6. My son, in the middle, has special needs from treatment of a brain tumor when he was only 8 months old. My husband is actively involved at church with the youth group; he loves to flyfish; and I am home schooling our two girls. I enjoy scrapbooking if given creative time. I need easy, kid-friendly recipes that are also healthy - the pounds just seem to keep adding on. Presenting new foods to my family always makes me nervous, but I gotta branch out.
