Grown Up Peaches n Cream

Monday, August 23, 2010

I love super easy desserts, especially in summer when it's 90 degress outside and the last thing I want to do is heat up the oven to bake something. So, I love a throw-together dessert using fresh fruits and minimal effort. I found this recipe on Foodnetwork and had to repost. Use with sweet, ripe peaches. A smallest pinch of cinnamon wouldn't hurt in the whipped cream either!

Boozy Peaches and Cream

Toss 3 sliced peaches with 1 tablespoon brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract; set aside until juicy, about 30 minutes. Whip 1 cup heavy cream until it thickens, then beat in 4 teaspoons brown sugar. Add 4 teaspoons bourbon and beat until soft peaks form. Layer the peaches and cream in dessert glasses; top with toasted pecans.

This is so funny b/c I literally just bought peaches and cream scented body wash from Sephora for two of my girlfriends' bdays yesterday. Smells so heavenly!! Your recipe looks amazing!

We just harvested the last of our O'Henry freestone peaches from the orchard and this is DEF on the menu for tomorrow night. I'm going to try rum in the whipped cream. Thanks!
