As Easy as Peaches-N-Cream

I bought a big box of peaches at the Farmer's Market last week. It hasn't taken long to gobble them up. A few as snacks, one cobbler, and a few in this recipe. OK, so my version of peaches-n-cream uses Greek yogurt. But it's good!

You need: peaches, raisins, rum*, walnuts (optional), honey or sugar
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Soak raisins in rum for at least 30 min.
  • Cut peaches in half and remove pit.
  • Place the peaches, cut side up, in a rimmed baking dish. Cover tops with honey (or sprinkle with sugar). Spoon raisins and walnuts on top.
  • Roast until peach is soft, about 15 minutes.
  • Serve with a dollop of Greek yogurt.

*A note about the rum - it's not something I keep around, so I bought a few of those little shot-sized mini bottles (like you see on airplanes). One mini bottle held the perfect amount of rum for soaking raisins for two peaches.

Sounds so good. That is how I buy alcohol for cooking too.

Oh, does this ever sound good! I love greek yogurt but not rum, so I would probably use apple juice in it's place.

That sounds like a great way to enjoy fresh juicy peaches from the Farmers Market.

I usually raid my in-laws cupboards for the hard stuff, but I think those little bottles are adorable. Especially if you can find little glass ones and not plastic. :)

Steph said... juice would be good, too, especially with a little cinnamon!

Hootie - I agree; they make cute bud vases.
