peach recipes, because I fully intend to bombard you with them until the cruelly short peach season is over. They are by far my favorite fruit, and I love eating them in savory dishes, sweet, dishes, and over the kitchen sink (with the fuzz peeled off of course - who eats the skin?).
When I first bought The Pastry Queen last summer, this was one of the first recipes that stuck out to me. Why I never made it last summer, I don't know. So when Tara chose it for this week's Project Pastry Queen recipe, I was stoked.
The sweet cheesecake filling is cream cheese and mascarpone based, topped with peaches that have been coated in cinnamon-sugar, and then brushed with an apricot-brandy glaze. The peaches are sweet and caramelized, and the filling is perfectly sweet and tangy. This is definitely a dessert to impress.
Tara has the full version posted on her blog, Smells Like Home. Next week, we're cooling down with Watermelon Lemonade!
