Ah the peach!
From August until mid September peaches and everywhere.
For those 6 weeks I eat almost no other fruit.
They signal the summer sun and the approaching fall with it’s cool crisp weather.
Fall is my favorite season so peach season is a welcome time of year for more than one reason.
In the olden days of not caring about my health, I would make peach long cakes, peach milk shakes, peach cobblers….you name it I made it.
Now I am much more mindful of what goes into my body, I eat many a peach but mainly in it’s purest form as piece of fruit, confirming that it never needed all that flour, sugar, butter and cream.
So if your craving a yummy in-season peachy dessert, check out the recipe below.
As far as desserts go – this one is a winner!
