 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    8      cups          thinly sliced peeled peaches (approx 8
                         medium size peaches)
    2      tablespoons   light brown sugar
      1/2  teaspoon      almond extract
      1/2  teaspoon      cinnamon
    1 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour
    2      teaspoons     baking powder
    2      tablespoons   white sugar
      1/3  cup           butter
      1/2  cup           milk
      1/4  cup           buttermilk
    1                    egg -- well beaten
 
 Preheat the oven to 400F. Lightly butter a 1 1/2-quart casserole. In a
 medium-size bowl, toss together the peaches, brown sugar, almond extract,
 and cinnamon. Spread in the bottom of the casserole. Sift together the
 flour, baking powder, and 2 Tbsp of the white sugar. Cut the butter into the
 flour mixture, until it has the consistency of coarse crumbs. Combine the
 milk, buttermilk, and egg and combine with the flour. Do not knead; the
 dough will be sticky, stiff, and lumpy. Drop by the spoonful over the
 peaches. Try to get even coverage, but don't worry about a few bare spots.
 Bake for about 25 minutes, until the top is golden and the juices are
 bubbling. Cool on a wire rack for about 5 minutes. Then loosen the biscuit
 from the sides of the pan and invert onto a serving platter.
