Directions

  • 1 In medium bowl, mix peaches, raspberries and 3/4 cup sugar. Let stand 1 hour so fruit will become juicy.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat oven to 400°F. In medium bowl, mix flour, 1/2 cup sugar, the baking powder and salt. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Using wooden spoon, stir in 2/3 cup milk, the almond extract and egg just until blended. (Dough will be stiff.)
  • 3 On ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by 8 spoonfuls about 2 inches apart. Brush with 1 tablespoon milk; sprinkle almonds over tops of each. Sprinkle with coarse sugar.
  • 4 Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet; cool 10 minutes.
  • 5 Cut shortcakes in half. Spoon about 1/4 cup ice cream onto bottom of each shortcake. Top each with 1/2 cup of the peach mixture; add tops of shortcakes.
