In our house we sincerely love peaches and are all smiles when they are in season! Peaches apparently grow quite well in our Midwest region and are plentiful at the farmers markets right now.
We love peaches so much we decided to name our Goldendoodle "Peaches". The kids get a giggle every time I talk about eating or serving peaches and say something like, “Mom! We can’t eat our dog!” Even the dog likes to eat peaches which really gets the kids silly by calling the dog a cannibal.
Kidding aside, this dessert is so easy to make, even a non-baker like me can’t mess it up. It takes less than 10 minutes to throw together. Then let it bake and watch your family become all smiles.
