Peach cobbler cookies with vanilla icing drizzle
Soft peachy cookies filled with oatmeal goodness and drizzled with a light sweet vanilla icing. So good as a nice summer dessert or as a breakfast snack!
Millions of peaches, peaches for me! I love peaches! They’re probably my favorite summer fruit. Check out the bottom of this post for some more of my recipes for peaches.
I think my favorite way to eat peaches is for breakfast. Chopped fresh ripe juicy peaches over cottage cheese with a light drizzle of honey. Oh, that’s pure breakfast heaven right there.
I’m always trying fun new ways to take advantage of the juicy summer peach!
Peaches are a stone fruit, and stone fruits are fruits with a big pit [or stone] in the middle, like a peach, plum, nectarine, or cherry. There are two kinds of peaches – freestone and cling. Freestone means that the pit easily detaches from the fruit, as opposed to cling, which means that the fruit clings to the pit. When peaches are ripe, they’ll yield to gentle pressure.
The best and easiest way to tell if peaches are ripe is to smell them. Peaches have a beautiful strong fruity smell when they’re ripe. Sniff the stem end, and a ripe peach will smell heavenly! Keep your peaches at room temperature on the counter if they aren’t ripe, and once they ripen, pop them in the fridge for a day or two.
I prefer to bake with aluminum free baking powder! If you can find it, do yourself a favor and get the aluminum free stuff. At first I didn’t think there was a difference between regular and aluminum free, but, I can totally taste the difference; the aluminum free baking powder tastes so much better to me! Here’s my Affiliate link for Amazon so you can see some options for aluminum free baking powder.
Also, I think these cookies will work well if you use frozen peaches; I haven’t tried frozen peaches here yet, as I love the fresh ones right now. If you try frozen ones, please let me know how it goes.
