Peaches & Cream

We have peach trees in our fruit orchard.  I can hardly wait each year for the peaches to get ripe.  I look forward to eating some peaches and cream.  It was Paula Deen that got me started on whipping cream.  On her cooking show, she'd take a dollop of whipping cream and put it on a dessert after she had prepared it.  She'd take a taste and then roll those big eyes of hers.  Well, when it's time for our peaches to get ready, we have a half-pint of whipping cream in the refrigerator that's sitting on ready to be whipped to go with those juicy peaches.  When the peaches are close to being ready, I put the mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer and let them get really cold.  After allowing them to get cold, I remove them from the freezer and set-up the mixer.  I next add the whipping cream.  Slowly, I add 1/3 cup of sugar and continue to whip until the whipping cream is thick.  I spoon the whipping cream into a bowl with an airtight lid and place in the refrigerator.  I now have whipping cream ready to use with fresh peaches.

Fresh, juicy Peaches

Instructions are above for preparing whipping cream with sugar.

Peel and then slice peaches into a pretty dessert bowl.  Put a dollop of whipping cream on top of the peaches.  You can't help but smile as it is truly a delight!
