What caught my attention with this recipe was that there were nuts in the shortcakes. What a great idea! That's pretty much the only thing I took away from this recipe and went off on my own with it. I didn't make homemade shortcake dough (used a generic bisquick, the store was sadly out of Jiffy) and I certainly didn't use lard. I did add brown sugar to the dough but used walnuts instead of pecans. I also added brown sugar to the peaches. They turned out pretty good except that I over-baked the shortcakes making them a bit hard. I placed the leftover ones in the fridge with some extra brown sugar peach juice and they were heaven the next day tasting more like a peach cobbler.
