Roasted Stone Fruit

Fresh peaches are delicious on their own, so you don't have to do much to make them into a tantalizing peach dessert. Roasting fruit, like a batch of peaches, causes their natural sugars to turn into a rich, caramely syrup that's perfect for dessert. And since this healthy peach recipe is almost all fruit (rather than sugar), all you need to add before roasting is a brush of butter, lemon juice, and maple syrup.

A slump is a dessert (akin to a cobbler) that is named for the posture it takes when spooned into a dish. The recipe calls for peaches and raspberries, but you can use whatever stone fruits and berries you have on hand. If you have appetite to spare, serve it with a scoop of vanilla, salted caramel, or cinnamon ice cream.

If you ask us, a focaccia recipe as dessert is a genius idea. Vitamin-packed peaches and antioxidant-rich blueberries top the treat, while vanilla-infused olive oil and sea salt provide a savory finish. If you want to give this peach recipe even more freshness, add a few sprigs of basil on top.
