Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
3/4 Cup sugar
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 Cup water
4 1/2 Cups peaches -- peeled sliced
1 Cup self rising flour
1 Teaspoon sugar
1/4 Cup shortening
1/3 Cup buttermilk
2 Tablespoons butter or margarine -- melted
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 Cup pecans -- chopped
Vanilla ice cream -- optional


Preheat oven to 400 F.

In a medium saucepan, combine the 3/4 cup sugar, the cornstarch and cinnamon; stir in water
Cook and stir till thickened and bubbly. Add peaches; return to boiling. Reduce heat and cook for 2 minutes more. Keep warm over very low heat.

In a medium bowl, combine flour and 1 teaspoon sugar. Cut in shortening till mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk and stir till just moistened.

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead dough gently for 10 to 12 strokes. Roll into a 9x6-inch rectangle.

Combine butter and brown sugar. Spread over dough to within 1/2 inch of the edge. Sprinkle pecans evenly over all. Roll up dough jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cut crosswise into six 1-inch pieces.

Pour hot peach mixture into an 8x8x2-inch (2-quart square) baking dish. Place pecan rolls on top.

Bake in a 400 oven for about 25 minutes or till golden brown. Cool for about 30 minutes and serve warm, with a scoop of ice cream, if you like.

Makes 6 servings

Note: If you don't have self-rising flour in your pantry or can't find it at your supermarket, substitute 1 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Note : Sweet swirls of pecan-studded biscuits top sliced peaches for a new twist on a seasonal best from Darlene Smith. It's the second winning dessert we chose from Darlene of Rockford, Illinois.
