This is the time for peaches and why not use them in every way possible. Try this recipe. It serves 2, so if more mouths to feed than that, add accordingly all the ingredients.
- 2 croissants (day old is best)
- 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
- 2 large, ripe peaches
- 3 large eggs
- 1/2 cup half and half cream
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- butter for frying
- icing sugar
Slice the croissant in half, lengthwise and spread 1 tbsp. of the cream cheese on each half.
Slice the peaches and place most of the slices on one half of each croissant. Put the tops back on each one.
Beat together in your electric mixer the eggs, cream, sugar and vanilla. Soak each croissant in this mixture but not to get them soggy. Melt the butter and cook each one until they become a golden brown and warm in the middle.
Place on a pretty plate, add the remaining peach slices and sprinkle a generous amount of icing sugar. If you JUST happen to have on hand, a dollop of whipped cream, it will just take this one over the top. Place a couple of mint leaves on the side (for colour).
I told you it was yummy…..and I didn’t lie.
