There is nothing better than a fresh peach! And baked goods like this homemade dessert are a great way to eat them.
One trip to your local farmers market or farm stand, at the right time of year, and you’re ready to get out your baking pans.
Peaches are related to cherries and plums. They are the same species as nectarines. One gene gives the fuzzy skin; another one gives the smooth skin.
This recipe can be made with any of these fruits, as long as they are ripe and juicy, or with apricots. Just choose the most luscious fruit in season.
It would also be fun to play with combinations of these fruits, if the mood strikes, and make a fruity cheesecake all your own.
