Peach Desserts


There are few pleasures in life more sensuously delicious than sinking teeth into a perfectly ripe peach to let its juicy, sugared sunshine flood over taste buds. Because their sweetness is so intense but also is tempered by a slight spicy edge, peaches have a unique presence in all kinds of desserts. Here are a dozen places that make the most of them: in pies, cobblers, popsicles, donuts, and ice cream.
