Summer in the south… heat, humidity, thunderstorms, lightning bugs, porch swings, and peaches. It’s a beautiful time of year.
I have had the best peaches of my life in the last five years since we moved to North Carolina. I’m not sure what their secret is, but the south can grow the sweetest, juiciest, and most delicious peaches. I am smitten!
Every summer, I anxiously await the arrival of peaches to the market. I make weekly (okay, if I’m being honest it’s more like bi-weekly) trips to the farmer’s market to get baskets of fresh peaches. Lately, I’ve been cooking up a storm with them.
To date, my favorite recipe is Peach Cobbler with Bourbon Cream. Sure I created it as a dessert, but no judgement will be passed should you decide to eat it for breakfast… It may or may not happen here at the farmhouse too. (Shhhh… you’re secret is safe with me!)
The warm, sweet, juicy peaches paired with the slightly sweet and crunchy topping are a match made in heaven. Just when I thought it couldn’t get more delicious, I was inspired to create a bourbon-infused whipped cream which elevates this dessert to a whole other level. Peaches and bourbon together are perfection!
My Peach Cobbler with Bourbon Cream is truly a sweet taste of the south and it is the perfect ending to a summer barbecue supper. Enjoy!
