Peaches n’ Cream…

peaches-n-cream

One of my favorite things about this time of year, are the fresh peaches.
I love peach cobbler, peach pie and toast with peach jam on it.
But this recipe is so simple to make, with just a few easy
steps… and it is delicious!

I for one, am dreaming about peaches today. I long for some of my favorite recipes that include fresh peaches. Every year I think peach season is far too short for me. Peaches can be used in so
many desserts and salads, cut into small chunks for salsa, or
to be served with chicken or fish…the possibilities are endless.

I always try to keep frozen puff pastry in my freezer for a quick and easy dessert, just like this one. The filling is simple and it looks and tastes like a french pastry. You won’t believe how much you
are going to love these peaches n’ cream.

Enjoy!
