With a name like this, who can resist? If you have fantasized about your (or someone else’s) mother’s peach pie, then this is a dessert to make as soon as peaches hit their prime. It is homey yet sophisticated, which is what we would all like to be.
Don’t waste your time using peaches that have no aroma. To taste terrific, peaches must be fabulously fragrant, right then and there in the market when you are lifting them to your nose.
This dessert, still wearing the warmth of the oven, is more than enough for the stuff of dreams, but if you want to gild the lily, add a scoop of ginger, lemon, or mango ice cream.
