Zesty Peaches and Cream Tart
Make this gorgeous peach tart recipe the centerpiece of your next celebration. Just looking at the rows of juicy, fresh peach slices has our mouths watering, and that’s before you even consider the decadent cream mixture underneath. This peach dessert comes together quickly, too—you’ll need to spend only 25 minutes on prep thanks to an easy-peasy puff pastry crust.
Peaches & Cream Prosecco Cake
Everything we love about summer is nestled between the luscious layers of this vanilla cake recipe. Each layer is soaked in bubbly Prosecco, then topped with a juicy fresh peach filling. Spread on plenty of whipped cream frosting, then top with a few extra peach slices to give guests a hint of what’s in store in each slice.
Peach Crumble Bars
Part peach crisp and part dessert bar, you’ll want to save this peach dessert to share at your next summer potluck or picnic. Three distinct layers make them so good, you’ll have to dole out seconds. They start with a simple, crumbly crust, followed by a fresh filling made with six ripe peaches. Finally, a peach crisp-style topping finishes them off with crumbles of brown sugar, hazelnuts, and shredded coconut.
From a few steps away, it’s easy to mistake these adorable peach macarons for the real fruits. Making the cutest macarons we’ve ever seen just takes some food coloring (to make each cookie like a peach) and mint leaves. To add flavor to this peach macarons recipe, use peach jam or fluffy peach buttercream for the filling.
This classic peach crisp recipe will be a hit no matter who you serve it to. Adding a sprinkle of cinnamon to the peaches gives the filling some spice, while mixing crushed graham crackers with the topping makes it taste almost like a peach pie recipe. When you combine the two, the result is a peach crisp recipe so delicious, everyone will be scraping their plates.
Peach Cobbler with Thyme Biscuits
Give a classic peach cobbler recipe a boost by tossing in some fresh thyme from your herb garden. Just a few pinches will make the flaky homemade biscuits on top remind you of fluffy rolls from your grandma’s kitchen. Then once it’s baked, sprinkle a few more sprigs on top so you can taste the juicy fresh peaches and thyme in every bite.
Fresh Peach Ice Cream
A lot of peach desserts are made even better by adding a scoop of homemade ice cream on top, and if you want a double-dose of fresh peaches, make sure you’ve got this peach ice cream recipe ready in your freezer. While it can add creaminess to a steaming bowl of peach cobbler, it’s also utterly indulgent on its own. You can even use it to make your own peach sundae by drizzling a decadent sauce on each scoop.
Skillet Dulce de Leche Peach Pie
You don’t necessarily need a pie pan to make a pie—this peach pie recipe cooks right in your cast-iron skillet. Unlike other peach pie recipes, start by grilling fresh peach halves to give the filling a subtle smoky flavor. Then, once you’ve assembled the flaky crust and spooned plenty of gooey dulce de leche over the filling, cook your pie on the grill for the ultimate summer cookout dessert.
If you enjoy pure peaches for dessert, you’ll love this slightly dressed up easy peach recipe. Rather than taking the time to bake a whole homemade cheesecake, you can just stuff each peach half with a dollop of cheesecake cream. Then a quick roast in the oven results in tender, caramelized peaches with warm, decadent cheesecake on top.
Peach-Berry Hot Honey Crisp
A peach crisp recipe is wonderful, but if you really want your dessert to taste like summer, adding berries is a must. This peach dessert recipe combines fresh, juicy slices with raspberries and blueberries for a trio of favorite summer fruits. In addition to all three fruits, this crisp recipe includes a hot drizzle of honey in the filling, which makes it gooier and more decadent than most.
Easy Peach Dump Cake
You can toss this canned peaches dessert together so fast, you’ll have time leftover to spruce up your kitchen or put up your feet before it’s time to bring out your serving spatula. This unbelievably easy peach cake recipe needs only three ingredients: A large can of peaches, a box of cake mix, and butter. No need to mix it all together either—just dump the ingredients in a pan and bake.
Upside-Down Almond-Plum Cake
We might’ve used plums to make this cake, but you can turn it into a peach upside-down cake recipe if you’re on the hunt for fresh peach desserts. For the most stunning effect, instead of cutting regular slices, slice your peaches (or plums) into thin halves. The result is a gorgeous cake that’s almost completely covered with fresh fruit slices and crunchy almonds.
Blueberry-Peach Custard Kuchen
Almost like a peach cake recipe, this peach and blueberry kuchen is the perfect dessert to transition you from summer to fall. You can use end-of-the-summer (or frozen) peaches and blueberries to give your kuchen juiciness, then add a pinch of nutmeg for a hint of fall flavors. The gorgeous berries and peaches on top are decoration enough, but if you want a little extra spice, dust the top of each slice with ground cinnamon.
A classic peach pie recipe gets a tropical twist by adding fresh mangoes to the filling. Other than the extra juicy burst of fruity filling, this peach pie is exactly what you’d expect—flaky crust and gooey, cinnamon-spiced filling. If you just want to change up your peach pie a little, this summery recipe is a delicious way to try something new.
Peach Crisp with Cornbread Topper
Grab your cast-iron skillet because it makes for some of the easiest, tastiest peach crisp around. You can start cooking the fresh peaches on the stove top, then pop the skillet in the oven to finish once you’ve added the topper. From the fluffy cornbread on top to the dash of bourbon mixed with the peach filling, this crisp recipe has homey Southern flavors through and through.
Peach Bellini Cake
Yep, we turned one of your favorite brunch drinks into a towering peach dessert. This easy peach cake recipe starts out with a white box cake mix, but once you’re through, no one will ever know it’s a store-bought mix. To take your cake to the next level, use champagne instead of water for the cake batter, then dress up each layer with a creamy peach frosting, honey, and fresh peach slices.
Peach Pie Shake
We love our peach pie with a scoop of ice cream on top, so why not blend the two together? This decadent peach dessert mixes a slice of peach pie with a scoop of ice cream, a dash of milk, and a few extra peach slices for good measure. Skip the straw, you’re going to need a spoon for this thick, indulgent dessert.
Peach Turnovers for Two
Grab someone special, because this quick peach dessert recipe was made for sharing! With a few sheets of puff pastry and over a pound of fresh peaches, you can whip up four peach turnovers that are the perfect size for splitting in half and sharing with a friend. A scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of your fresh-out-of-the-oven turnover is optional (but we’d never say no).
Apricot Skillet Pie
We know this recipe is technically an apricot pie, but stone fruits are similar enough that you can easily swap in fresh peaches. They’ll be just as tasty mixed with fresh, juicy cherries and enveloped in an easy-breezy puff pastry crust. No matter which filling you choose, bake and serve the pie in your cast-iron skillet and top with a few scoops of vanilla ice cream or a generous swirl of whipped cream.
Peach Cheesecake Ice Cream Sundae
When you can’t decide what peach dessert you want, reach for this sundae that combines a few tasty treats into one. We dressed up plain vanilla ice cream with caramelized roasted peaches and chunks of chopped cheesecake. Top off your sundae with a few more peach slices and graham cracker pieces so you can scoop up a taste of ice cream, peaches, and cheesecake in each bite.
Peach Melba Pie Pops
Planning a picnic? You can tote and share these adorable peach pie pops a lot easier than a whole pie. We filled each one with raspberry jam and canned peach pie filling (plus a fresh raspberry), so each bite will taste just like a regular summer fruit pie. You can leave the forks and dessert plates at home, because this on-a-stick recipe can be eaten out of hand.
