Peach Drop Danish

Sharing is caring!

The first time I had these amazing danishes was at a church function we were having. My friend Debbie made them and from the first bite, I have dreamed of making these ever since.

She recently gave me her recipe, so I have been super excited to share these Peach Drop Danish cookies with you for #SummerDessertWeek.

When she told me her secret was Jiffy Baking Mix from a very old cookbook she had, I knew there was NO way to find it online.

But she loves me, so she gave me a copy for our family.

And — everyone loves these! These are similar to Raspberry Thumbprint cookies but made with peach jam and in drop biscuit form.

How to Make Peach Drop Danish Cookies

First, mix together the Jiffy Baking Mix, sugar and butter until it is crumbly.

Add in your milk until a dough forms. Then you are going to drop them by rounded spoonfuls onto your baking sheet.

Create a well in the center of each with the back of a spoon. Now, take your peach jam (or whatever jam or preserves you want to use), and add to the center of the well.

Bake at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes until the cookies get done. Pull your Peach Drop Danish Cookies from the oven and allow them to rest for a couple of minutes.

Mix up your glaze ingredients and drizzle over the top.

Now – serve them up to your family and enjoy!

These look great and fairly easy to make. Since peachers are starting to come into season I will have to give these a try as soon as I get my hands on some. I have a feeling I will love these because anything with peaches is delicious.

You will and you can change out the centers of the cookies to whatever jam you have on hand!
