A dessert that brings memories of summer or that celebrates it in the moment—a perfect sweet to cozy up to after beachcombing on an unseasonably cool day.

You can use yellow or white peaches for this dish, or a combination. The almond extract heightens the flavor of either.


  • 4 cups peeled and sliced ripe peaches cup plus
  • 3 tablespoons sugar


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Butter a 2-quart baking dish.
  2. Arrange the peaches in the baking dish. Sprinkle with the ⅔ cup sugar, the lemon zest and juice, and the almond extract.
