The Definitive Peaches and Cream

The Definitive Peaches and Cream created by Lavender Lynn

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!

Ready In:
5mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 2 small doughnut peaches, unpeeled and sliced (*NO* canned peaches!)
  • 3 tablespoons heavy cream (approximately-don't drown the peaches) or 3 tablespoons half-and-half (approximately-don't drown the peaches)
  • ground cinnamon, to garnish (or cardamom or freshly grated nutmeg)

directions

  • Slice up the peaches (I don't bother with peeling them.).
  • Arrange in a bowl and pour heavy cream on the top and around the edges.
  • If desired, sprinkle lightly with ground cinnamon (or freshly grated nutmeg or ground cardamom).
  • 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.
