Peaches and cream bars, 06.24.12
Last summer when I was making peach things, I bought some way too late and they didn’t have time to ripen. A few weeks ago, when I made these the first time, I left them out on the counter for a few days and they got close enough. This time, I needed them to ripen a little faster, so I tossed them in a paper bag. To give me the third of the Goldilocks trifecta, those first seven peaches got thrown out because they overripened. I bought seven more, now underripe because it was far too late in the game, and then proceeded to dump the entire bowl of sliced peaches on my floor, wall, baseboards, refrigerator, cabinets, and feet. Seven more down.
But even after all of that, these are delicious. They’re easier to cut if they have time in the fridge first, but dropping them warm into cupcake liners, I felt like I was nose-deep in a Pop Tart factory.
