Recipe from The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook by Chef Devin
Alexander and The Biggest Loser experts and cast with
3/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons
flour, plus more
1/2 cup whole-wheat
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons cold
light butter (stick,
not tub), cut into pieces
2/3 cup low-fat
1 large egg
4 ripe peaches
1 1/2 cups fat-free frozen
To make the biscuits, preheat the oven to 400°F.
Lightly spray an 11-by-7-inch ovenproof glass or
ceramic baking dish.
Combine dry biscuit ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. Cut in the butter until crumbly. Add the
buttermilk. Stir with a fork just until moistened.
On a lightly floured work surface, knead the dough
gently, adding a little flour until the dough forms a
ball. Pat the ball into a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle.
Cut 6 biscuits with a floured 3-inch round biscuit
cutter or cookie cutter; transfer them to the prepared dish about 3/4 inch apart. Beat the egg with
1 tablespoon water in a small bowl. Lightly brush
the top of each biscuit with the egg mixture.
Bake for 13-15 minutes, or until lightly golden on
top. Cool for a few minutes on a rack. Cut the biscuits
in half horizontally. Place the bottom half of each
biscuit on a dessert plate.
Peel the peaches and cut them into 1/4-inch-thick
half-moons. Divide evenly among the biscuits. Top
each with 1/4 cup whipped topping. Then rest the
biscuit tops on an angle to one side of each. Serve
immediately. Makes 6 servings.
