My sweet friends, it is already August. This means our summer days with peaches are limited.
I'm not ready to part with my daily snack of a fresh peach. I look forward to the ripe, juicy peach in my lunchbox each day. When I get home from work and smell the peaches ripening on the counter, I can't help myself to another.
Let's celebrate the last few weeks of summer with a peach dessert every day!
First, let's drink our peaches. With booze. (Like you didn't see that coming!)
Boozy Sweet Tea
A batch of Southern sweet tea with peach moonshine stirred in. Get to sippin' on this one.
Fresh Peach Jalapeño Margaritas
Let's say you need some spice with your peaches...and some tequila. No judgement from me.
Peach Chai Fro-yo Shake
This peach shake doesn't have booze in it...yet. Try adding rum; you'll thank me.
Let's move onto the cooked peach. The peach that's been dipped in sugar, topped with cream, and covered in frosting is never a bad idea.
Drunken Peach Bars
Hey, I never said that baked peaches were going to be alcohol-free. My best friend Esther makes this dessert all the time. Now, if I could only get her husband to share with me! You can hardly separate a man and his bourbon-soaked peaches.
Ginger Peach Cupcakes
One of the most delicious cupcakes on this site: spicy, sweet and creamy.
Mini Cheesecake with Honey-ed Peaches
I marinated fresh peaches in honey instead of cooking them. The results were delicious, especially on top of a mini cheesecake for two.
Brûléed Peaches 'n Cream
A new take on your favorite dessert. This recipe involves a blow-torch. You know it's going to be good.
Grilled Peaches with Frangelico Syrup and Homemade Cinnamon Ice Cream
I think I was really trying to impress you with this dessert. It must have worked, since you're reading this now.
Two-Bite Peach Pies
I tucked spiced peaches into muffin cups lined with pie dough. The results were delicious.
Texas Peach Cobbler
This is the only recipe you'll ever need for peach cobbler. Really.
Fresh Peach and Raspberry Mini Pie
I made this mini pie for you in the early days of dessert for two. My photography skills were lacking, but my taste buds were not. Raspberries love peaches.
Now, you are fully prepared to savor the rest of peach season. Enjoy!
So many recipes I still have to try before fresh peaches disappear!

Giiirrrllll, now you've got me seriously craving peaches! Specifically, those drunken peach bars. Yum!
I made the two-bite peach pies last night, so tasty! I'm usually terrible with pie crusts, but they turned out perfectly - flaky buttery deliciousness :)

This is a great selection of peach recipes! It's the perfect time of year for them, since peaches are one of the last fruits of the summer season!
