Almond Shortcake Biscuits with Fresh Summer Fruit

Even though I am sooo ready for autumn weather, the one thing that keeps me going through these summer months is the abundance of in-season fruit. We have an amazing organic blueberry farm shortly across town that Allison and I love to visit every year. We pick enough berries to last us for months on end and have a great time researching new recipes to try with our haul. Usually we end up putting them in desserts and baked goods or blending them into smoothies, but sometimes they are perfect with just a splash of honey and served over something, like waffles, pancakes, or even these Almond Shortcake Biscuits with Fresh Summer Fruit. This recipe I pulled from Golden Blossom Honey's website this week for a summery breakfast option in place of the biscuits and gravy that my husband loves to make several mornings a week. This recipe is more fitting for a lighter meal during the hot months over the thicker, heavier southern breakfast classic that leaves one feeling sluggish and weighed down after eating. 

These biscuits could go either way, for breakfast or eaten as a dessert, but I really love it in place of regular breakfast foods. Normally I'd pay a lot for fruit topped pancakes at a restaurant when we are traveling, but I do try to be a little more budget conscious during the days we are staying in our home and this helps me get a similar taste experience without paying high menu prices we get when dining out. The shortcake recipe is super easy to follow and I found that the dough holds up quite well in the fridge for several days when it's wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, so I can just roll out enough dough for however much I'll need for my meal and can save the rest for the next day so I don't have to bake the entire batch in one go. This ensures a pillowy shortcake each time I'm in the mood to have this as a meal. If you aren't a fan of peaches or blueberries, no worries. Any seasonal fruit can be swapped out, making this another fantastic customizable recipe from Golden Blossom Honey.



4 ripe peaches, peeled and sliced

1 pint blueberries



2 cups flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup sliced almonds

3/4 cup milk
