On the day God made fruits and vegetables, I'm so glad He decided to include peaches in the mix. They are my favorite fruit and since we're in prime peach season, delicious recipes are flying around kitchens of The Roof. We had to share a few of our favorites...perhaps you need to make a jaunt to your local farmers market or roadside stand and get in on the action!
The first recipe comes from The Musing Foodie, whose husband is a die hard peach cobbler fan. She made this for his birthday recently and it was gone in two days. This particular cobbler recipe (as not all are created equal) has a chewy top crust and when topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, promises to make you swoon. Jump on over to her site if a swooning cobbler is what you're after! She teaches you how to blanch the peaches and use the natural sweetness of the peaches to avoid excess sugar. Two thumbs up for CC's Peach Cobbler!
We now mosey on over to the delicious website What's for Din Din by our friend Donna! Many amazing cooks have contributed to this arsenal of culinary delight and the Deep Dish Peach Pie is not one you'll want to miss! Jackie Kennedy's personal chef made this...with a cream cheese top crust! It's cobbler style as well, so you don't have to be intimidated by a two crust (from scratch) option. You can do this ladies!
When all else fails, sliced peaches over ice cream are fail proof and spectacular as well. When it comes to peaches, it's a win no matter how you fix them.
Stay tuned for more delicious recipes from the women of The Roof as we explore some creative ideas to use the fresh fruit and vegetables that abound this time of year. This Saturday series will keep you coming back for 2nds!
Have a delicious day!
CC and Donna
