Peach Muffins & Bread Warmer Hostess Gift
Join me today as I share my tasty Peach Muffins & Bread Warmer Hostess Gift idea to get you ready for the holidays!
Happy Fall Y’all, we just started to get some cooler weather and the leaves have just now started to fall. So now it really has begun to feel like the proper season around here. Today I am sharing a down home southern recipe of Peach Muffins & Bread Warmer Hostess Gift. The bread warmer makes such a sweet little hostess gift for this holiday season if you are traveling to others homes to share a meal, I know I love mine.
I am going to start by talking a little about the artisanal bread basket. First of all it is all handmade, and is affiliated with the world fair trade company. The basket itself reminds me a lot of the handmade sweetgrass baskets you see at the straw market in Charleston South Carolina. It is made of Kaisa, a sturdy wild grass cut from the riverbanks during monsoon season, by women in Bangladesh. These women are provided with a steady, fair wage and a safe workplace, as well as training in new techniques to expand their skills.Rahab’s Rope has casted the terracotta clay tiles which are oven safe, and keep your breads warm. Directions: Rinse stone before use, Preheat oven your to 350F. Place terracotta stone in oven and bake for 10 minutes. To clean your stone, rinse with water, it is not dishwasher safe. The stones come in many other custom patterns, mine reminds of the Tree of Life or Giving Tree, which I found to be appropriate based on the charity that Rahab’s Rope supports, you can see more. patterns and information at this link.
- Mixing Bowl
- Measuring Cup
- Ice cream Scoop (Small) Optional
- Mini Muffin Pan
- 1 8.5 package Jim & Nicks Cheese Biscuit Mix
- 1 Egg
- 3 Tbsp Butter Cut into Small Pieces
- 1/3 Half & Half
- 1 cup Peaches Drained
- 1 can Spray Olive Oil
- Assemble Your Ingredients above, this recipe is a hack so while you use a box mix you are not following those directions.
- Mix the Jim & Nicks Mix with cut butter pieces. I use my hands just like making biscuits, this method is known as cutting in butter. You can grate the butter into the mix as well, it is you choice as to what you are comfortable with doing.
- Add in drained peaches, make sure to let them sit in a strainer for a bit to remove excess juice.
- Then add in your half & half to make a dough like mixture.
- Scoop the muffin mix into a greased mini muffin tin.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees, 350 if you are at a high elevation. Allow to cool for 5 minutes and turn them out into your bread basket.
No matter what you chose to put inside of your bread basket, or whether you order one to keep and one give away, it really is a wonderful gift to give this holiday season. I was able to pick mine up locally at the vendor booth located in Out of The Cedar Chest located at the Gainesville location. However, you can always check out the online store and have yours shipped directly to friends and family that are out of state as well, if you are not local.
