Ingredients - Filling  
5   Peaches, peeled and sliced [frozen works just fine]  
1 c    Blueberries, fresh [frozen is fine]  
  Orange Juice, fresh squeezed  
  Sugar  
1 pinch    Nutmeg, fresh grated  
2 t    Cornstarch, blended together in a measuring cup and poured over the fruit  
5 T    Marionberry Preserves , or one could substitute Cherry, Strawberry or Raspberry  
Ingredients - Biscuitt Topping  
5 T    Butter, room temperature  
2 c    Flour, + cup for rolling out  
1 T    Sugar  
1 T    Baking powder  
  Salt  
  Milk  
Ingredients - Glaze Topping  
2 T    Sugar  
 
1 Preheat oven to 400F
2 Bring all the filling ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan, then turn down heat and simmer until the filling becomes thick.
3 Spoon the thickened fruit filling into a medium (at least 10 x 8-inch) baking or casserole dish, and spread it around evenly until it meets all sides of the dish. Spoon the Preserves in between the peach slices.
4 Using clean hands, pinch the butter and the flour together between your thumbs and forefingers until the flour and butter become crumbly. Mix in the sugar, baking powder, and salt and slowly stir in the milk to make a soft dough. Sprinkle a work surface with the 1/4 cup flour, knead the dough lightly a few turns on the floured surface, and roll out to a perimeter approximately the size of your baking dish. With a cookie cutter or a glass cut out 10 biscuits and lay them slightly overlapping on top of the fruit filling, using scraps of leftover dough to fill in any uncovered spots.
5 Sprinkle the top with the sugar. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes until biscuit topping turns golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes. To serve, scoop out a biscuit and fruit filling and transfer to a dessert bowl or plate.
