Baked peaches topped with crushed Biscoff cookies, pecans, and vanilla ice cream.
I think the best thing about the end of summer is that we get to enjoy peach season. I love fresh, crisp peach slices. Every year I try to use them in just about everything I can from baked treats like pies, crisps to salads and dinner recipes. My mother in law has a peach tree that the kids love picking peaches from.
We picked up a bag full of pretty peaches screaming to become a baked good. I went back and forth about what to make with these orange-red beauties and finally decided to try baking them. Since I enjoy adding texture to my desserts I knew I wanted a little bit of a crunch to them. This is where my Biscoff-pecan topping idea blossomed. Its crushed Biscoff cookies and chopped pecans that add flavor and texture to these sweet peaches. My best friend came over this weekend for a party (more details on that soon) and while the kids snacked on cute finger foods we enjoyed peaches, reminiscing about our teenage years. We enjoyed ours warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, homemade whipped cream would also work great with this recipe.
