Ripe & Ready — Best Summer Peach Desserts
It’s no mistake to use the expression “just peachy” to describe complete satisfaction. In fact, we can think of nothing more satisfying than fresh summer peaches, especially in desserts. As these succulent, sweet fruits come into season, there is no better time to showcase their taste in any number of creative peach desserts.
From the classics such as peach cobbler and peach upside-down cake to new recipes like peach empanadas and a dazzlingly refreshing ginger peach freeze, each of these desserts is packed with the delicious flavor of ripe summer peaches. We’re even including a recipe for simple grilled peaches; after all, what better way to enjoy a perfect peach than on its own?
As you start to make these dishes, be sure you have the freshest, ripest fruit on hand. Peaches remain a truly seasonal summer experience. Unlike other fruit that has become available year-round, peaches can be found only in summer, and that limited availability is cause for celebration right now. So no matter whether you’re serving peach dessert to a large party or just making enough for yourself, fresh peaches are a special occasion in their own right. You could even say they’re peachy-keen.
