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.

Add the salt and butter; beat until smooth.If needed add a bit more (1-2 Tbs) water for thinner consistency. Heat a lightly oiled small pan over medium-high heat. 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. Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and repeat until batter is gone.

  1. Chop peaches into 1/2" pieces and remove pits. Place in a medium sauce pan over medium heat. Add in butter, schnapps, maple syrup and nutmeg and stir until well combined. Let cook for 4-6 minutes while continuing to stir on occasion and it starts to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside.
for the filling:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9X13 pan and set aside. In a large bowl combine ricotta cheese, cream cheese, egg, powdered sugar and lemon juice and stir together until well combined while smoothing out any lumps.
for assembly:
  1. Place 2 heaping tablespoons of the ricotta cheese mixture into the center of one crepe. Fold in outer edges while rolling in inner edges to make a rectangle or burrito type shape. Place each filled crepe into the well greased pan and continue until the pan is full, then cover the pan with aluminum foil. Place filled crepes into the oven for 8-10 minutes or until ricotta mixture is set. Remove from the oven.
  2. Place one to two crepes onto a serving dish, top with a heaping of peach mixture and serve. Continue until all servings are met.
