Ingredients

8
peaches, peeled and sliced (6-8 cups)
1/4 c
bourbon
3/4 c
sugar, plus more for dusting
2 Tbsp
corn starch
1 tsp
cinnamon, ground
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 tsp
kosher salt
16 Tbsp
unsalted butter, cold
3/4 c
heavy cream, plus more for brushing

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
2
In a large bowl add the peaches, bourbon, 1/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon and mix well to coat the peaches evenly; set aside.
3
Prepare the dumplings:
Into a bowl sift together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) butter into small pieces. Add it to the flour mixture and cut it in with a pastry blender or your hands until the mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs.
4
Pour in the cream and mix just until the dough comes together. Don’t overwork; the dough should be slightly sticky but manageable.
5
In a 10-inch cast iron skillet over medium-low heat, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons butter. Add the peaches and cook gently until heated through, about 5 minutes.
6
Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls over the warm peaches. There can be gaps, the dough will puff up and spread out as it bakes.
7
Brush the top with some heavy cream and sprinkle with some sugar; put it into the oven on a baking sheet to catch any drips.
8
Cook for 40 to 45 minutes until the top is browned and the fruit is bubbling.
