Cooking Instructions

1

Heat oven to 450°F. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse meal; mix in the cheese. In a small bowl, mix the milk, 1 egg, and 1 egg yolk with a fork, reserving the remaining egg white for glaze. Add the milk mixture to the large bowl; stir just to blend thoroughly.


2

Divide the dough into 6 equal portions. Form into 3-inch circles, spaced apart, on a greased baking sheet dusted with cornmeal. Brush with the reserved egg white; sprinkle generously with sugar.


3

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes until lightly browned. Remove from the pan; cool on a rack. Sweeten the peaches to taste. Halve the shortcakes horizontally; place the bottoms on serving plates. Top each cake with some of the peaches; dollop with whipped cream. Cover each with its shortcake top and more peaches; dollop with more whipped cream.
