I can't believe there hasn't been one of these posted yet! This is a perfect light, summer dessert. Make sure to use fresh, ripe peaches. You could make one big souffle instead of individual ones, but would need to adjust your cook time accordingly.

I like this recipe, however I thought it was slightly too "tangy." Next time I will do 1/2 TBSP Lemon juice, and 1 1/2 TBSP Vanilla extract. I would possibly mix 1/2 tsp. or so of cinnamon into the powdered sugar to go on top. Next time I may make a banana souffle with toasted coconut to top... We'll see how that turns out ;)

- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
