 Last summer, a coworker brought us some peaches from her Aunt's house.  We vacuum sealed them and put them in the freezer in town and at the farm.

She brought more this year.  Yay!  So I brought this bag home, kept it on the counter for a few days and then got them out to seal them up.  A few were too overripe and I discarded those.  The rest were ripe and wonderful (a couple didn't make it to the freezer, ha).

I cut them into pieces and then put them into a bowl with a bit of sugar for extra sweetness and some lemon juice to keep their color.

When I was done cutting, I put them onto a sheet pan and stuck them in the freezer for about an hour.  Did this twice (our freezer in town is small, won't fit a large sheet pan so had to do them in two smaller batches).

In the end, we ended up with about 4 cups (heaping) of sliced peaches.  I decided to put them all into one vacuum seal bag instead of two.  We figured 4 cups would be a good amount (especially since they are a bit on the small side) for a cobbler or pie.

With all the peaches we now have frozen we need to come up with some quick and easy desserts.  

Anyone have any ideas for peach desserts?  Got any great recipes you'd like to share?  If you don't want to share online in the comments, please email us directly and we'll keep it secret, ha.

We'd just like some good recipes...


  1. Lucky you to get a load of free peaches ... I would go for the old standby Bisquick peach cobbler!

  2. Before I think about desserts or preparing them to use, I like to make myself stuffed with fresh peaches along with skin. The best way is out of hand. Of course, the juice just runs all over. I don't like that but it is a sign the peach is just right. Peach pie would be my first choice. Or maybe peach fried pies.

  3. I love easy recipes and this is one that's delicious and easy.
    1 refrigerated pie crust
    4 cups sliced peaches
    ¾ cup sugar
    ¾ cup flour
    ½ tsp cinnamon
    ¼ tsp salt
    5 TBSP butter
    ½ cup chopped pecans

    Unfold pie crust onto a 12 inch pizza pan. Roll dough lightly to smooth creases.

    In a medium bowl, combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Sprinkle ¼ cup of the mixture over crust.

    Arrange the peaches on crust, leaving a ½ inch border around the edge. Using a pastry blender, cut butter into the remaining flour mixture until crumbly. Stir in pecans. Sprinkle topping over peaches. Fold edge of dough over peaches, crimping as needed.

    Bake at 400° until crust is golden, about 20 minutes. Best served warm.

  4. Lots you can make with peaches.
    Just to name a few:
    Easy peach crisp or cobbler made in individual oven proof dishes
    Peach ice cream
    peach pie
    Homemade peach sauce to put on ice cream, pancakes, waffles, cheesecake, use in making parfaits.
    Have a wonderful and safe weekend.

  5. Peach cobbler (biscuity topping) or crumble (flour, butter, sugar, oatmeal, cinnamon etc.) That's all that's needed on a day you are alive!!

  6. What a great coworker you have! I can imagine the wonderful scent of peaches as they sat on your counter getting ripe.

    Here are some recipes:

    Peach Dumplings - Pioneer Woman

    Peach Cobbler - Paula Deen

    Peach Delight:
    6 - 8 peaches, sliced
    1c. oatmeal
    1 stick butter
    1/2 c. brown sugar
    Cinnamon, to taste

    Preheat oven to 375 F.
    Place the sliced peaches in a baking dish.
    Make the crumb topping: Combine the oatmeal, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Mix together until ingredients crumble; sprinkle on top of peaches.
    Bake for 30 - 45 minutes until golden brown.

    Betty Crocker's Cookbook Peach Pie
    Pastry for 9 inch two crust pie
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/4 cup flour
    1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    5 cups sliced peaches (about 6 or 7 peaches, medium size)
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    2 Tablespoons margarine or butter

    Preheat oven to 425 F.
    Prepare pastry or buy the already made pie crust.
    Mix sugar, flour, and cinnamon.
    Stir in peaches and lemon juice.
    Fill pastry crust with filling.
    Dot with the 2 Tablespoons of margarine.
    Cover with top crust. Make slits or holes in it.
    Bake until crust is brown and juice begins to bubble through the slits in the top crust - usually 35-45 minutes.

  7. Well I would just go for peaches with heavy cream and a spoon. Of Course a scene in a recent movie comes to mind if you ever have some not but up.
