Summer Fruit

Warm Peaches with Whipped Cream

Anita called me to ask for summer fruit inspiration to feed the missionaries, and this is what I came up with (one of my favorites). It's delicious and easy. I thought you all might want to be inspired for the delicious fruit desserts of summer. After all, it is the best part of summer.

6 ripe yellow peaches
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cut each peach in half, then cut each half into 4 slices. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, sprinkle the sugar over the butter, and stir until dissolved, about 1 minute. Add the peaches, increase heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring frequently, until the peaches are softened and coated with a thin sauce, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand a few minutes. Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat the cream and vanilla until soft peaks form. Spoon the peaches and sauce into bowls and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Yield: Makes 4 servings

Thank you Wali. I'm hoping that this dish will prove most delicious. Actually, I'm totally stoked to try this out but alas I have only 5 peaches. No big deal. The rest of dinner should be very filling.

You don't have to have six peaches. Six was way too many for Scott, Phil, and I last summer. I got inspired too, I am making it with our two peaches that on the verge of spoil. Should be delicious!

I gotta get me some of that! I may even have to leave work early to stop by the store . . .

Oh, okay, I was thinking of taking off early anyway, but that does sound so good!
