Stuffed Summer Peaches and Pretty Vintage Linens

Happy Friday to you!  I picked up this set of vintage linens at a flea market the other day.  The set includes a tablecloth and 4 napkins.  Aren't they pretty?  I sure think so!
I thought they would be fun to use with a summer dessert I made for a few friends who came for an afternoon visit.  Stuffed Peaches with Fresh Whipped Cream.  This is an easy, fast dessert with very few ingredients, but oh so delicious.  First up, juicy summer peaches!
And Biscoff cookies.  So good....
First, take half the package of cookies and put them in a food processor to crumble them up.  Or you could just stick them in a ziploc bag and use a rolling pin to smash them up until they look like this.
Set the crumbs aside and grab 3 fairly large, firm peaches.  Make sure they are firm as they will be going in the oven and they need to be able to hold their shape.  Slice the three peaches in half and remove the pit and a little bit of the flesh around it with a melon baller.  Place the 6 peach halves in a buttered baking dish.  Spoon a tablespoon of crumbs in each peach.  Sprinkle with sugar and top with a little butter.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 30 minutes.  While those are baking up, whip 1 cup of heavy cream with 1/4 cup of powdered sugar and 1 tsp of vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer or in a large bowl with a hand mixer.  Whip until you have stiff peaks but before you have butter.  :)
When you're ready to serve, spoon a dollop of cream onto each peach half.  If they are a little warm from the oven, that's even better because the fresh, sweetened cream melts into the yummy peaches.  So good!!  Hope you all have a nice, relaxing weekend!  Anybody working on any fun projects?

  1. I love anything with peaches. We live fairly close to Clanton, AL which is the "peach capital" around here...lots of fresh peaches and peach stands. Thanks for this recipe, I'll be trying it out soon. I have a great peach cobbler recipe using bread for the topping...i'll send it your way soon.

    IF you paint your DR walls, what color are you going to use? I'm always 2nd guessing my choices but last night I made the commitment to the Canvas Natural and the painter is having it mixed today so I'm not changing my mind...but I'd love to know what you have in mind.

    As always, thanks for your sweet comments on my blog!
