If you’re looking for a way to use up peaches, here’s an easy recipe, almost effortless actually. You can roast the peaches with a few ingredients till the liquid is just about evaporated, then puree it for a delicious peach butter that can be used in so many ways. Try topping a slice of plain cheesecake with this wonderful peach goodness, as the photo above shows.
How about a spoonful or two on your morning oatmeal, as in the following photo.
You could also make these delicious roasted peach butter spice cupcakes.
Or you can spread some on a bagel, slice of toast or waffle.
Then again, you could simply eat the peach butter off a spoon. So-o-o good.
