Peach Plum Crisp

This fruit crisps recipes uses my favorite stone fruits:  Peaches and plums make great fruit crisp recipes!

Peach & Plum Crisp from JensFavoriteCookies.com - This fruit crisp recipe is a great way to enjoy the later summer harvest!My grandmother called me the other day to tell me that she had a bumper crop of plums, and that I better set aside some time soon to come pick them.

Apparently no one else in the family had much need for them.  Which honestly surprised me.  This family is full of people who garden and cook and bottle their produce.

When I got to Grandma’s house a few days later, I was sad to see that two of the main branches on that plum tree had broken.  The weight of the large amounts of fruit had weakened them, and a recent wind storm did them in.  It’s going to take a while for that tree to recover.

This means, I better make as much plum jam as I can while I have the plums to do it.

And as long as I have the equivalent of two 5-gallon buckets full of fresh plums in my house, I suppose some plum desserts are in order, too.

I adapted my favorite peach crisp recipe to incorporate the plums, and this delightful late summer dessert was born.

So, funny story… you know how peaches and plums both taste fantastic with almond extract?  (If you ask me, almost every food tastes awesome with almond extract.  I’m tempted to drink the stuff straight sometimes.)

My bottle of almond extract looks exactly like my bottle of peppermint extract.  And when I was making the filling for this lovely fruit crisp, I accidentally put peppermint instead of almond extract in it.  Oops.  I was kind of heartbroken to have to throw out my filling and start over.

In case you were wondering, peaches and plums do NOT taste fantastic with peppermint extract.

I was thrilled to be able to share this treat with my friends.  We sat around the table, and traded ideas for using up the summer fruit harvest.  One friend has a plum tree of her own, and this year used it to make a bunch of fruit leather like this.

Which is what I’ll be doing, if I have enough left over after making all the jam.  And probably a couple more crisps!  Without peppermint, of course.

Peach Cobbler for One

Peach cobbler recipe easy; This peach cobbler crisp is perfect for one person, and easy to make!

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Del Monte, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #DelMonteBTS  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV

Single Serving Peach Cobbler from JensFavoriteCookies.com - This easy peach crisp for one is a perfect recipe for college students or other singles!School has begun and summer is officially over.

I’m always a little sad to see summer go, because I love the warm weather.  However, this particular summer was nuts.  Crazy.  Absolute chaos.  I’m kind of grateful to have a few hours of silence.

On the other hand, this school year is different than all the others.  My oldest son, The Lizard, is a senior this year.  It’s his very last year of school.  It makes me a little teary, and frankly, nostalgic for the first day of kindergarten.

We’re in the final stretch now, the last year of teaching this kid to be an adult.  I’ve got to be sure he can make his bed, and pay his bills, and feed himself.  Something besides ramen noodles and cold cereal, preferably.

Since I had to go to Walmart for new lunch boxes this year, I decided to get some healthy lunch foods for my nearly-grown, and always-hungry kiddos while I was there.  These diced peach cups from Del Monte were perfect.

They are great with a sandwich and some pretzel sticks.

They are also the perfect size to make a little dessert for one, so I got The Lizard to help me throw it together.  I don’t want The Lizard eating candy bars for dessert after he leaves home.  Not when this crispy peach cobbler is so easy to make, so warm, comforting, and delicious.

I started with a little peach cup, added some oats, brown sugar and butter, and voila!  Dessert.  REAL dessert.

I love a snack food that works as part of a healthy breakfast or lunch, an after school snack, or a tasty dessert!

Maybe it will even help take the sting out of this final year of high school.

Sparkling Peach Limeade

Non-alcoholic drinks recipes; This delicious peach limeade is a perfect non-alcoholic summer drinks!

Sparkling Peach Limeade from JensFavoriteCookies.com - non-alcoholic summer drink made with fresh fruit.I really have a hard time eating raw fresh fruit.  It’s been years, decades, since I ate an orange or banana.

There are exceptions of course; apples, naturally, pears on occasion, and my very favorite fruit ever, peaches.  Sometimes I think God made peaches just for me.

The real problem is that when I have peaches, I have an overwhelming urge to do something with them, besides eat them plain.  I want to make all my foods peach-flavored.  I want peach smoothies every morning and peach cobbler every night.

For the warm, late summer afternoon, I chose this refreshing and sparkly Peach Limeade.  Fresh peaches for the win!

The Fruitarian does not understand me at all.  He cannot comprehend that someone would rather eat celery than bananas.

He enjoyed this drink a lot, but immediately upon finishing it, he asked me if he could eat the peaches I sliced for the photos.  I had a hard time sharing.

Maybe I should have traded him the fresh fruit for his glass of limeade, because when I was done with my glass, I was ready for seconds!

Spring came early this year.  I think it’s because the winter was so nasty.

Whatever the reason, this spring fever has me craving fruity cookies of all kinds.  So guess what I did?

I put together a collection of some of my favorite fruity cookies from around the web.  All these cookies have one big requirement to make it on this list: They have to contain actual fruit in some form.  (In other words, no strawberry cake mixes or lemon pudding mixes, it must be real fruit.)

And what a collection!  I can’t wait to dive into all of these recipes!  I just know you’ll find one or two (dozen) recipes you’ll love.

Peach Oatmeal Cookies

A recipe for a crumbly, oaty peach cookie with white chocolate and walnuts, similar to peach cobbler.  Easily substitute other fruits.

Source: Food Network, this time courtesy of Sunny Anderson.

Yield: About 3 dozen cookies

I bought a bag of peaches at the grocery store this week.  I don’t know what I was expecting, after all, it is June and peaches aren’t really in season for another 2-3 months.  But I love peaches.  They are my favorite fruit.  So I broke down and bought a 2 lb. bag.  Now I don’t know what to do with them.

I discovered recently, thanks to Stat Counter, that several people found my site by searching for “fruit flavored cookies” and that got me thinking that there aren’t enough fruity cookies on this blog.  I have a tendency to be partial to chocolate.  (Can you blame me?)  So I went looking for some peach cookie recipes to try.  There were unfortunately very few available.

I did find this one from Sunny Anderson, host of Food Network’s Cooking For Real. I really like the show, and her style of cooking.  I did have some problems with the recipe, but nothing that will keep me from making it again!
