A good tip for picking out perfectly ripe peaches is that the fruit should be very fragrant; if it doesn't smell like a peach, it won't taste like a peach.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Butter or line a baking sheet.

  • Bake the biscuits for 13 to 15 minutes (add 3 to 4 additional minutes for frozen ones), until golden brown. Cool slightly and serve warm.

  • While biscuits are baking, place the peaches or nectarines in a bowl with the orange juice and Triple Sec, if using. Stir and let sit for a while, stirring occasionally.

  • If the biscuits aren't straight from the oven, heat them in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Slice open and butter the top side of each biscuit. Place each bottom on a plate. Place 2 small scoops of the ice cream onto each biscuit. Top with a large spoonful of fruit. Drizzle over some juice and top with other buttered half. If using whipped cream, place peaches on the biscuit first. Serve immediately.
