Peach Shortcakes

Not sure if that is a good name for these but I was trying to be creative. Whatever you want to call them they are delicious!

14 biscuits, homemade or from a can
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
4 tablespoons cornstarch
3 bags frozen peaches, partially thawed
1/2 cup good spiced rum, I used Captain Morgan Preferred Stock
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons honey
Whip cream

Make It:
Preheat oven to heat called for on biscuit recipe. Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add butter and stir until melted. Add brown sugar, stir until mostly dissolved. Add rum, cinnamon, honey, and vanilla, stir to combine, allow to cook over low heat stirring occasionally. In another bowl, sprinkle cornstarch over peaches, stir until completely combined. Pour peaches into brown sugar mixture, stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and turn heat down, leave at a low simmer, stirring occasionally until thickened. Pour sugar into a flat dish(pie plate or tupperware)dip each biscuit top and sides into melted butter then press into sugar, place on baking sheet. Repeat with all biscuits. Bake for time specified on biscuit recipe. To serve take a biscuit, slice it in half, place on a plate and spoon a good amount of the peach mixture over biscuit. Top with whip cream. Enjoy!
