Warm Nectarine and Blueberry Shortcakes

  • SERVINGS: 8
  • VEGETARIAN
  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  3. 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  4. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  5. 1 stick plus 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, 1 stick diced
  6. 2 3/4 cups heavy cream, plus more for brushing
  7. 1/2 cup turbinado sugar
  8. 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar, plus more for dusting
  9. 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  10. 1 3/4 pounds small nectarines or peaches, pitted and thinly sliced
  11. 2 pints blueberries
  12. 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°. In a food processor, pulse the flour, baking powder, granulated sugar and salt. Add the diced butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add 3/4 cup of the cream and process until the dough just comes together.
  2. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 3 times. Roll out the dough 1/2 inch thick. Using a floured 2 3/4-inch round biscuit cutter, stamp out 8 shortcakes as close together as possible; transfer to a large baking sheet. Brush the tops of the shortcakes with cream and sprinkle with 2 heaping tablespoons of the turbinado sugar. Bake the shortcakes for 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  3. In a bowl, beat the remaining 2 cups of cream with 1/3 cup of confectioners' sugar and the vanilla until soft peaks form.
  4. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in a large skillet. In a bowl, toss the nectarines with the berries, the remaining 1/3 cup of turbinado sugar and the lemon juice. Add to the skillet and cook over high heat, stirring, until the fruit begins to release its juices, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  5. Cut the shortcakes in half horizontally. Set the bottoms on plates; top with the fruit. Add a large dollop of whipped cream, close the shortcakes, dust with confectioners' sugar and serve.
