I think Peaches could quite possibly be my favorite out of all the stone fruits~
Whole Foods Market does the work of finding the “best of the bunch” for me and keeps there produce area stocked with ONLY the best of the best. There won’t be any fruit roulette as you pick and choose your peaches… Each peach is fresh, and ready to bite into. However, sometimes it’s fun to create with them too, especially in the summer when light, cool & refreshing treats are a must.
Peaches are my go-to fruit for all things dessert..I mean yes, they have a ‘stone’ in the center.. but they totally make up for it with their sweet, generous-juice deliciousness. 🙂
~ Not to mention their versatility. What a fun addition to your summertime BBQ by tossing a few peaches onto the hot grill, or jazz them up in the easiest way ever with these super simple, yet super impressive Peaches & Cream Dumplings.
Thanks to Whole Foods Market’s affordable food choices and produce.. I’ve been ‘peaching’ up a storm!
This time, I decided to make an upscale, 5 star-ish, classy dessert that even the snootiest of guests would enjoy..LOL! So unlike me, I know~ but hey…it was still super simple, and didn’t require any real measuring, soooo!
Actually, the “result to effort” ratio of this little summertime treat is off the charts, and makes no real sense. These beautiful babies take less than 15 minutes from prep to lips and deliver the most scrumptious treat ever!
A warm, buttery and golden sugared crust gently hugs a ‘bursting at the seams with juice’ peach that’s been filled with the sweetest cream cheese filling you can imagine.
They’re the perfect way to end a meal on the patio OR a family/friend gathering indoors.
What you’ll need:
