Light and airy, these biscuits are cake-like when they’re topped with cream and sugar, and then stuffed with bright peaches, blueberries, and pillows of whipped cream.

Why Try? As a great “shortcake shortcut,” use prepared biscuits from the refrigerated section and then top them with cream and sugar before baking to turn them into quick shortcakes.

Fresh peaches peak in ripeness about mid-summer so we suggest using frozen peaches during the rest of the year because they’ve been frozen at perfect ripeness. If you can find great fresh peaches, or you have a peach tree ripe for the picking, by all means substitute them for the frozen ones.

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 can refrigerated biscuits, 8 biscuits
