Peaches and cream just got a little boozy thanks to fresh, in-season peaches that we infused with peach schnapps. We save time by using refrigerated jumbo biscuits so you can get this summertime favorite on the table in a snap. Homemade whipped cream tastes so much better than the canned stuff, but if you need to save yourself an additional few minutes, you can also grab the ready-made stuff.
