Peaches are such a beautiful, unique fruit. You never mistake peach flavor for something else, as there is just something about the juicy sweetness that is so obviously a peach. It’s fitting that peach season coincides with summer, because the fruit is bright, floral and fun, and to celebrate these tasty treats I put together a list of my favorite peach desserts. Each recipe showcases the peach flavor in its own way, and you’ll find pies, ice cream and so much more.
"Morning, sunshine!" That's what this Peach Rye Cake says to me and what a joyous way to start the day. Sure, it's cake and can be served with ice cream as a dessert too, but the rye and honey evoke more of a morning muffin vibe, so I am suggesting this with a dollop of yogurt to start your day.Get the recipe
This is my modern take on peach melba, fresh peaches with ice cream and croquant. Traditionally a Peach Melba is nothing more than peach, vanilla ice cream and raspberry sauce. I stuck to peaches throughout, so the ice cream and whipped cream have peach puree added to them.Get the recipe
There is nothing more beautiful than a perfectly ripe, juicy, smooth, sweet peach, so don't fuss it all up with too much extra stuff. This perfect peach pie with lattice crust is really just peaches, a touch of booze (which is optional) and some raw sugar.Get the recipe
This lovely tart is quintessentially Italian. I had some perfectly ripe peaches sitting on the counter, so I decided to top the tart with them. It is super tasty and an ode to summer, but it would be just as good without the peaches, served with a strong cup of coffee.Get the recipe
Blueberry cobbler is the perfect dessert to finish off a picnic or any meal enjoyed al fresco during the summer. You can make it in a baking dish, or as individuals in ramekins. Either way, paired with white peach ice cream, it's a huge hit!Get the recipe
