    Cookgirl's Note:

    There are many foods that define summer: corn on cob, root beer floats, watermelon, berries, heirloom tomatoes, fresh basil...! However I was surprised there were no recipes posted on this site for simple peaches and cream! Here's a quick dessert/snack/breakfast item sure to please young and old alike. No extra sugar was added in order to take advantage of and to appreciate the natural sweetness of the peaches. I like to use doughnut peaches (also known as 'saucer' and 'UFO' peaches) but any variety will work. If the skin really bothers you, go ahead and peel the peach-I understand. Nectarines are really delicious prepared this way, too!

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 small doughnut peaches, unpeeled and sliced (*NO* canned peaches!)
    • 44.37 ml heavy cream (approximately-don't drown the peaches) or 44.37 ml half-and-half (approximately-don't drown the peaches)
    • ground cinnamon, to garnish (or cardamom or freshly grated nutmeg)


    1. 1
      Slice up the peaches (I don't bother with peeling them.).
    2. 2
      Arrange in a bowl and pour heavy cream on the top and around the edges.
    3. 3
      If desired, sprinkle lightly with ground cinnamon (or freshly grated nutmeg or ground cardamom).
    4. 4
      Take a whiff then enjoy and savor summer and its bounty!

      This is something we had regularly when I was growing up. We put sugar instead of cinnamon. What a delicious and easy dessert. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

      Yep, 5 stars for Peaches and Cream! So simple, but the taste is sophisticated. I both made and ate this in about 5 minutes. You might think of it as "deconstructed peach Ice cream" and that makes it so much more than just fruit with milk! Thanks Cookgirl! Made for Cuinary Quest 2014

      Simple and delicious, lovely and light. Creamy and dreamy. These simple peaches, dusted with cinnamon and drizzled in cream were wonder. It was so quick and easy to make. I can't wait to try this with Niagara Peaches. Mine weren't quite sweet enough. I will be making this again often. Thank you so much for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest.
