For the past couple weeks or so we have had a rotating stash of fresh BC peaches sitting on our kitchen counter, blissfully reminding us that HEY Y'ALL IT'S SUMMER!!! and we have been enjoying them every day. I love fresh peaches with yogurt in the morning, or as an afternoon snack. They are so fresh, sweet and juicy naturally that it really feels like a shame to do anything to them.
UNLESS you are a cookie monster like me and you remember that you have had this recipe on the back-burner of your baking brain that you have been wanting to test run but could not because you never had both fresh peaches AND peach jam in your possession at one time...
But hey! Now the stars have aligned and we have the proper resources (and time!) to make these fresh summery cookies! A great way to use up that peach jam that has been sitting in the fridge... and another way to each more peaches during these late summer days. Amen.
These cookies are soft and cakey and are sprinkled with cinnamon sugar (YES!) before baking, making them all the more delightful.
PS I bet these would make a smashing accompaniment to vanilla ice cream... like a fun little spin on peaches and cream. Please do try and let me know how it goes. Happy summer baking!
