ummm! You can taste the fuzz on the peach. Good served on biscuits, french toast or whatever suits your fancy.

This is absolutely delicious! I've made two batches of this recipe already. Just wondering what to do to make it just a little bit thicker. My little grandchildren raved over the taste of this! Wonderful on hot buttered biscuits and I think will be equally delicious over some hot pancakes!!
