Wicked Bourbon and Peach Temptations

Hot summer days have me craving  the juicy peach, and I love walking the market in search of the best sweethearts of summer.  If they aren’t available yet in your local farmers market or roadside stand, they soon will be.

Bourbon Peach Cobbler by Tyler Florence ( my fav ) for Food Network.  While searching for fantastic recipes the first one on my mind was definitely a good peach cobbler.  I popped over to see what Tyler would have for me to add to the recipe box and spied his gorgeous Bourbon Peach Cobbler.  This is a simple, yet oh so delicious version that you simply must try.  Shopping list; Peaches, bourbon, sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, flour, baking powder, salt, butter, heavy cream and vanilla ice cream.  Recipe and method.

Bourbon-Roasted Peach Cheesecake by María del Mar Sacasa for Serious Eats.  I read the list of ingredients for the the Bourbon-Roasted Peaches alone, and my mouth began to water.  Then my eyes made their way down to the pecan crust and finally the cheesecake filling.  This is on the docket for the next summer gathering and I am positive plates will be coming back for seconds and thirds so a few of these hitting the dessert  table will be necessity.

While the recipe at first glance looks to be a bit involved, don’t let it be too daunting to make.  Take it one step at a time and soon you will be able to whip this up for friends and fam with your eyes closed. It’s simply too delicious not to.  Shopping lists;  Bourbon Peaches;  Peaches, butter, bourbon, salt and brown sugar.  Pecan Crust; Graham cracker crumbs, pecans, butter, brown sugar and salt.  Cheesecake Filling; Eggs, vanilla bean pods, sugar, cream cheese, flour and heavy cream.  Recipe and Method
