THIRTEEN FAVORITE PEACH RECIPES

Peaches are here, and if you’re wondering what to do with them, I’ve got thirteen ideas for you, ten sweet and three savory.

My all-time favorite peach recipe is Peach Frangipane Tart.   The almond custard that sits underneath those peaches is just divine.frangipane tart
Almond Liqueur Peach Pie is one of the best peach pies I’ve ever eaten.  Cooking the liquids down intensifies the peach flavor.almond liqueur peach pie
Peach Cream Pie Glace is a favorite from an old cookbook.  A cookie crust and cheesecake filling are the base for glazed, sliced peaches – absolutely delicious.peach cream pie glace (5)

Looking for a show-stopping dessert?  Ricotta Cheesecake with Almond Liqueur-Glazed Peaches is just as delicious as it is beautiful.  ricotta cheesecake
Williams Sonoma is the source of this great peach cobbler recipe.  Instead of biscuit topping, this one has an amazing crust that I love.  I even have a Limoncello-Almond version you may want to try.peach cobbler
If you’re a fan of biscuit crusts, try this Georgia Peach and Berry Cobbler.  Self-rising flour and cornmeal make for an interesting and flavorful biscuit topping.peach berry cobbler

Old-Fashioned Peach Pie with Berry Sauce ranks right up there with my top faves.  Those old-time recipes are hard to beat.peach pie with berry sauce
Roasted Peach Butter Spice Cupcakes are deliciously different.  The roasted peach butter is easy to make (recipe included), and tastes great inside and on top of the cupcake.  You can use leftover peach butter to top your toast or bagel.peach butter cupcakes

If muffins are your thing, try these great Low-Fat Peach Cobbler Muffins.  A crunchy streusel topping elevates these.MUFFINS
Peach preserves are not hard to make, and you don’t have to load the peaches with tons of sugar.  Try my low-sugar version.

My Chipotle Ginger-Peach Barbecued Chicken with Grilled Peach-Cucumber Salsa didn’t win a prize, but was rated 5 stars by betterrecipes.com.

Or try Betty Crocker’s Grilled Chicken with Chipotle-Peach Glaze, also good.chicken

Grilled Tuna with Peach or Mango Salsa are perfect marriage partners.  The flavors of the salsa go perfectly with mild tuna (or chicken). 

There you have it – thirteen fabulous recipes to help you use up your peach bounty.  Happy cooking and eating!

Mmm, it all looks delicious! We have had probably 300 peaches from our backyard trees this year. Your peach glaze with chicken looks like one I must try :)

Judy, I'd love to try the Roasted Peach Butter Spice Cupcakes, but the link is broken and I can't find the recipe in the sidebar menu. My mom used to make peach butter and I miss it!

Judy said...

Eileen, I fixed the link. You couldn't find it on the sidebar because it's from my other blog, The Bear Cupboard. Sorry about that.

Lynn, lucky you with all those luscious peaches.
