Peach Shortcakes (gluten-free)

For 4th of July I tried something new… Since I am gluten -free I am always looking for ways to turn deserts gluten-free. Since strawberry shortcakes and peach cobbler are popular on holidays I combined them to make peach shortcakes. I had peaches and had found gluten- free Bisquick mix.

This was an easy thing to do… so I cut up the peaches and mixed them with a little Splenda (you can use sugar or your favorite sweetener). I chilled the peaches mixture for the afternoon. Before dinner I mixed up the shortcakes recipe off the Bisquick box (I only made 1/2 the recipe and it still gave me 5 shortcakes).

When I served dinner I plopped the piles on a baking sheet for the shortcakes as directed and baked them while we ate. When we were done I had taken the shortcakes out and they were cool enough so I cut them in half, put on some homemade whip cream, added the peaches, put on the shortcake top, and topped with the homemade whip cream and cinnamon. They were yummy and delicious.

Hubby and my Dad even said they did not taste gluten-free. To make the whip cream I combined heavy whipping cream and Splenda and whipped it with my hand mixer till stiff peaks formed. Now that I know this recipe will work I am anxious to try it with other fruit like blueberries, nectarines, and even maybe apples (would want to cook the apples first).
