  • About

Not overwhelmed with liquor but subtly spirituous, a few of these sweet peaches served with delicate biscuits are an elegant dessert any time of year.

We offer this relatively small recipe, as preparation of the fruit in one layer makes for pretty, unblemished, evenly cooked fruit. If you have more than one skillet, make more than one batch, as the peaches improve with age.
