Nothing says summer like a good, ripe peach. I’m savoring these last few hot days. And I’m not even a ‘summer person.’ (Really and truly. I like cold weather the best. It’s OK, you can call me a weirdo.)
Yesterday I told you about my summer forays to the farmers market. On Saturday, I brought home a peck of peaches — probably one of the last of the season — plus some local goat cheese and honey.
You already know I love using peaches in savory dishes, like my Tangy Peach Salsa, and in cocktails too, like this Blackberry Peach Sour or this Honey Peach Old-Fashioned. But to me peaches will always, always, always be best as a dessert.
These Roasted Peaches with Goat Cheese + Honey are a joyful and succulent after-dinner delight. The sweet peach juices and warm honey drip down your chin with each tender bite. The creamy, soft tang of goat cheese paired with the floral notes of honey drizzle and a hint of melted butter will make you wish this dessert — and summer itself — would never, ever end. And I’ll be standing right by you.
