Tasha is hosting this week's link-up and her ingredient of the week is Peaches.
My late sister, Mary, discovered these at a restaurant in St. Charles, Missouri, Miss Aimee B's. There's a gift shop in Miss Aimee B's establishment, where they sell a cookbook in which all of their delectable secrets are published.
Rather than purchase the cookbook, my ingenious and frugal sister committed the recipe for Peach Bombs to memory.
Mary shared the recipe with me, and I've made it lots of times. I made it for my friend, Sara, and she blogged about it on Pots and Peter Pans, a recipe/cooking site that I am also a contributor to.
Another contributor to Pots and Peter Pans also made the recipe and took photos.
Fast forward some years, my brother Ed got engaged to a Louisiana girl named Adaire. The first time my family met Adaire's family, Adaire's mother made Peach Bombs for them, citing the Pots and Peter Pans blog that friends' of cousins or cousins' of friends of theirs also contribute to.
Adaire's family served my family the same dish that my sister had discovered and promoted. Peach Bombs Go Viral!
It's a very simple recipe, especially if you buy Pillsbury Just Unroll! Pie Crust found in the refrigerated section near the biscuits in a can, etc.
Patrick calls them "bald heads."
Can you guess why?
Peach Bombs adapted from Miss Aimee B's, St. Charles, MO
serves 4 that's why I always double or triple it
1 unbaked pie crust
Wrap each peach in 1/4 pie crust. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes.
1 1/4 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon or tablespoon of almond extract (Mary was never quite sure about this ingredient. I've made it both ways and either is amaze-balls. It depends on how much you like/love almond flavoring.)
1 beaten egg
Combine sauce ingredients in saucepan. Cook stirring constantly until the sauce boils and thickens.
|We forgot the egg, so our sauce was quite thick but still in-cred-dee-blay.|
Serve sauce over peaches. Serve with whipped cream or a la mode. Prepare to be showered with praise and gratitude.
Thanks, Mary. Your legacy lives on and on.
Go see my other sister, Anne for the next ingredient reveal.
