Ingredients
  1. Peaches
  2. 4 large ripe peaches
  3. 2 sprigs tarragon
  4. ¼–½ cup sugar
  5. Shortcake And Assembly
  6. 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  7. 1 sprig tarragon
  8. 1 cup cake flour
  9. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  10. 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  11. 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
  12. 2 teaspoons sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  13. 1½ cups chilled heavy cream
  14. Whipped cream (for serving)
Instructions
  1. Peaches
  2. Using the tip of a paring knife, score an X in the bottom of each peach. Cook in a large pot of boiling water just until skins begin to peel back where cut, about 1 minute.
  3. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl of ice water; let cool. Peel; cut over a medium bowl into ¼"-thick wedges, collecting juices.
  4. Add tarragon and sugar to peaches and toss to combine. Let stand, tossing occasionally, until peaches release their juices and sugar is dissolved, about 1 hour.
  5. shortcake and assembly
  6. Preheat oven to 425°. Heat butter and tarragon in a small saucepan over medium heat until butter is melted; set aside.
  7. Whisk cake flour, baking powder, salt, 1 cup all-purpose flour, and 2 tsp. sugar in a large bowl. Drizzle chilled cream over and mix gently until dough holds together.
  8. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead into a shaggy ball, being careful not to overwork. Place on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet and form into an 8"-diameter disk, about ½" thick. Brush with some reserved melted butter and sprinkle with sugar.
  9. Bake until shortcake edges are golden brown, 12–15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 325°. Bake until golden brown all over, 8–10 minutes longer.
  10. Brush shortcake with remaining melted butter. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool. Cut shortcake into 8 wedges, spoon peaches and their juices over, and top with whipped cream.
