Summer is the most ideal time to make peach desserts. They are always a lot sweeter and juicier during the hot season and perfect to use in jams, sorbets, pies, or cakes. I’ve always wanted to go to a peach orchard one day and pick the best ones directly from the tree to fill up my fruit basket. This is going on my bucket list for next summer!
Not only do peaches taste really good in desserts, they also have a gorgeous golden yellow/orange color that pops out beautifully. (The same way a vase of sunflowers pops out and brightens up a room).
To accentuate the beautiful color and sweet taste of the peaches, I decided to bake them in a pie with a lattice crust. I thought this was also great way to create more texture by blending the soft baked peaches with the crisp, and flaky crust throughout the peach pie.
