Top 5 Peach Recipes ~ There are several songs written about these sweet little gems from nature and I believe for good reason. Peaches are a big part of summer in my opinion. There’s just something so special about finding that perfect peach, bitting into it, and letting the juices run down your hand before you are able to grab a napkin. Texas peach season is in full swing right now and with all of the rain that we had in spring it didn’t disappoint. Here are some of my all time favorite ways to enjoy nature’s candy.

Pour or scoop the batter onto the griddle, using approximately 1/4 cup for each crepe. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Place each filled crepe into the well greased pan and continue until the pan is full, then cover the pan with aluminum foil.
