Ingredients

Peaches:
  • 4 large peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon white truffle oil
Shortcakes:
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
  • 1 cup well-shaken buttermilk
Sweet Ricotta Cream:
  • 1 cup whipping cream, chilled
  • 4 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1 pint fresh huckleberries or raspberries, for serving

Directions

For the peaches: Grill the peaches over medium heat until lightly grilled, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Place the honey, lemon juice and truffle oil in a mixing bowl and add the grilled peaches. Toss together to coat well. Let stand until juices form, about 30 minutes. For the shortcakes: Put the oven rack in the middle position and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Blend in the butter with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse meal. Add the buttermilk and stir just until a soft, sticky dough forms. Drop the dough in 6 mounds about 2 inches apart on an ungreased large baking sheet and bake until golden, 15 to 18 minutes. Transfer the biscuits to a rack and cool slightly, about 10 minutes. For the ricotta cream: Beat the cream, confectioners' sugar and vanilla in medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold in the ricotta and reserve. Using a serrated knife, cut the shortcakes in half horizontally. Place the cake bottom on each of 6 plates. Top each with the sweet ricotta cream and grilled peaches. Cover with the cake tops. Garnish the plates with huckleberries and any reserved truffled peach juices.
