My husband and I recently had a “debate” of sorts over what our favorite summer fruit was. Watermelon or Peaches? Living in the South, both are pretty prolific at the end of summer through the beginning of fall. We both agreed that we loved the cold, crunchy sweetness of watermelon but really at the end of the day nothing compares to a perfectly ripe peach.
You might disagree, but if you are looking for ways to enjoy the perfection of a fresh peach harvest here is a new recipe for you. These little muffins make a great snack or breakfast accompaniment. They are a little crumbly, and best served cold, but it doesn’t take away from their deliciousness.
