I know, you’re looking at this and thinking “What is Peach Willy?” This is a recipe that has been in our family since I can remember. When I saw the Sunday Supper Forum I knew what I would be making.I have to admit that I haven’t made this in years. When I pulled out the recipe I shocked to see the dough was made out of Bisquick (yep, you read that right). In my horror I called my Mom (who is my go to expert for baking) and asked if I was reading this correctly. She assured me it was and it would be really good, we used to make it all the time. Luckily I found a suitable biscuit mix at my local Whole Foods – whew.
How this recipe got it’s name is beyond me. It’s made up of biscuit dough rolled out into a rectangle, coated with brown sugar and peaches then rolled like a jelly roll. Slice the roll, arrange in a pie plate then top with a brown sugar syrup and any fruit that might have escaped. Bake this, then sprinkle with a mix of brown and white sugars for a glossy sheen. It is truly amazing.I set about making this for a friends birthday celebration. I was pleasantly surprised, it was just as good as I remembered – even better.
This recipe was a staple in our house as I grew up. Now I have to admit I don't mix up the biscuit mix. I use two pie crusts or the prepared puff pastry. It's even better than the biscuit mix but don't tell my Mom!
- 21/4 Cups of Biscuit Baking Mix
- 2/3 Cup of Milk
- 2 Pounds of Peaches peeled and sliced
- 2 1/2 Cups of Brown Sugar divided use
- 2 Tablespoons of Butter cut into pieces
- 1/2 Cup of Water
- 1/2 Cup of White Sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and butter a pie plate, then set aside.
Combine the Bisquick Baking Mix with the milk to make the dough, on a floured board roll the dough out into a rectangle. Sprinkle 1 Cup of the brown sugar over the dough, then top with the butter. Spoon 1/2 of the peaches over the dough. Roll the dough like a jelly roll, keeping as many of the peaches inside as possible. Slice the roll into rounds and place into a buttered the pie plate. tuck the remaining peaches into the pan between the rounds.
Dissolve 1 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a saucepan.
Place the Peach Willy in the over for 10 - 15 minutes until the top begins to brown. Remove from the oven and pour the brown sugar syrup over the baking dish.
