What is Peaches and Cream?

Peaches and cream are just that! Warm saucy peaches topped with cream and served with a scoop of ice cream. In this case, we simply cook them stove top for a few minutes creating a delicious and buttery sauce perfect served with ice cream.

This is the perfect finale for summer recipes like grilled chicken, or grilled pork chops served with Baked Corn on the Cob.

  • PEACHES: You don’t have to be from Georgia or the South to find perfectly sweet and juicy fruit for this peaches and cream recipe. Georgia is famous for its peach groves and during May and June. Its famous Clingstone peaches are harvested and sent all over the country. Freestone peaches are picked and distributed nationwide between June and August.
  • CREAM: While you can find good quality vanilla ice cream and whole heavy whipping cream any time of the year, this will ensure a rich and flavorful summertime dessert!

How to Make Peaches and Cream

No need to overcomplicate this easy recipe when the main attraction is in-season, fresh peaches! You can have this tasty dessert ready in 3 simple steps!

    1. Prep: Slice peaches in half and remove the pit, placing in a shallow dish or baking pan, cut side up. (I usually peel the peaches using this peeling method).
    2. Simmer: Combine the prepped peaches with a bit of sugar, cinnamon and cornstarch. Allow to cook a few minutes on the stove until soft and syrupy.
    3. Serve: Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar and a small mint leaf garnish.

    1. I haven’t tried it Lisa, so I can’t say for sure. But I think it would freeze just fine. If you try it, I would love to hear how it turns out.

  1. I’ve since I was a child this was done with sliced peaches and sour cream, with a touch of brown sugar for sweetening. The contrast between the sweet of the peaches, brown sugar, and the sour cream is a delicious treat.
