Peaches and Cream Two Ways: Doughball and Tempura

Here's a Peaches and Cream Makeover using sour cream, brown sugar and canned peaches. I'm sending this in to 5 Star Peaches and Cream Makeover . For the Dough ball version, I used Pillsbury butter biscuits flattened with a rolling pin to about 2 mm thickness. Canned peaches were mixed with sour cream and brown sugar and frozen for 30 minutes. This was wrapped in the flattened dough and shaped into a ball (see photo) and frozen till hard. The second version is the same filling but the peaches-sour cream-brown sugar mix was dipped in tempura batter and frozen hard. It was more difficult to handle than the dough ball. Both were fried briefly in very hot oil to brown and just crisp up the dough and tempura batter. The result is a desert that is warm on the outside but cold and sweet inside. Very interesting textures and flavor!

I saw this dish featured in 5 star Foodie's peaches and cream round up. It looks fantastic. I love the combination of tempura and sweet flavors so this sounds like a definite winner. Nice post.
