Peach Topping:

  1. Whisk water, sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon together in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add sliced peaches and cook until sauce begins to thicken, stirring occasionally to coat all of the peaches. Remove from heat and cool.

  2. Whip heavy cream in a bowl until stiff peaks form.

  3. Cut each biscuit in half horizontally. Place the bottoms on a serving plate. Add a dollop of whipped cream, top with ¼ of the peaches, another dollop of whipped cream, and the biscuit top.
