Grilled Peaches and Cream

OK I think that I've done it, maybe the cooking on the grill thing has gone too far... well maybe not... is that even possible?  In my last post I mentioned that I have grilled about every sort of protein and almost every vegetable out there, this week I have been working on dessert.  I have done it a couple of ways but I think this was the best!

Grilled Peaches and Southern Biscuits... without turning the oven on at all!  It was easy enough to start with:

The peaches
2 whole peaches pitted and cut into 8 pieces
2 TBS balsamic vinegar
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Mix ingredients together and set aside to soak. 

While they are soaking make your biscuits:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powser
1 tsp salt
1 TBS brown sugar
1/2 stick COLD butter cut up
1/4 cup 
Mix first four ingredients together then add butter and milk.  Quickly mix together kneed briefly being careful not to over mix, then roll out to about 3/4 of an inch and using a biscuit cutter cut into circles.  Roll and repeat I got 6 biscuits in total.   Place on a small oiled baking sheet and... yes my friends set on a cool area of your grill and cover.

Once the biscuits are going put your peach wedges on a hot area of the grill and cook until they are nicely caramelized.  Take the peaches off and set, back in the marinade you will be using that liquid.  The biscuits took about 20 minutes in all, while I was cooking the rest of my meal, when they were done they had risen quite well.  Cut them in half and stuff serve with whipped cream (heavy cream, honey and vanilla) and your peaches then add just a touch or the marinade.  What you end up with is a light biscuit with a cloud of whipped cream and the sweet, tangy slightly smokey fruit with caramelized sugar and vinegar clinging to it.

Now I have grilled just about everything this summer except for salad (working on that though) and soup... which is just weird. 


  1. Transplanted southern girl here saying everything is better on a biscuit. Toss in grilling and I think it would be very tasty!


  2. This is so ODD. I was just leaving a comment over at TKW and then I was going to google grilled peaches.....and then I looked up and there your comment was with your lastest post listed. So cool. I am a blogger who does not cook most of the time BUT I do grill and will give your recipe a try. I even have all the ingredients.

    Thank you!

  3. Now I am definitely going to fill up the gas bottle- have you made pizza on the grill? It's a big camping thing to do here in Oz. Loving the peaches and biscuit idea

  4. Camilla, I do pizza on the grill pretty often! I usually do 4 at a time so the kiddos can each dress their own. They go pretty fast and have a wonderful crunch and smokey flavor. Here is one of them

  5. Love the grilled pizza, and get to work on that will not be disappointed! It is finally cool enough to grill again here, looks like fruit on the grill will make an appearance this week! YUM!

  6. Grilled peaches are so good! I'd come over for dessert in a heart beat.
