Watch and learn how to make these creamy, no-churn vanilla ice cream cones dipped in rich dark chocolate and topped with crunchy roasted peanuts for a super delicious summer treat.

Peaches are high in vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, a good source of thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B-6, folate, fiber, potassium and antioxidants. Need any more reason to eat peaches? Watch and learn how to make this super easy Peach Shortcake, ripe sliced peach soaked in Triple Sec paired with warm biscuits and vanilla ice cream, heavenly summer dessert! This is also good with nectarines instead of peaches. For softer, cakier biscuits, add more milk and spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet. Firmer biscuits require less milk and should be rolled out and cut.

Peach Shortcake
Makes 10 to 12 individual shortcakes

For the biscuit
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon coarse salt
6 Tablespoons (3/4 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
3/4 cup milk
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the filling
1 pound fresh ripe peaches, peeled and sliced
2 Tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 Tablespoons Triple Sec liqueur, optional
1 Tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 pint best-quality vanilla ice cream, slightly softened, or whipped cream

*** For directions watch the video.
