These Peach Cookies filled with peach preserves and dipped into peach liquor are a delightful and delicate summer dessert.
Hello, my friends. I have one simple question I would like to ask you right away. Do these Peach Cookies (although I would rather name them mini cakes) look like real stone fruit? Have you thought for a second that Ben went nuts and decided to post photos of peaches instead of an actual recipe? I know although they don’t look exactly like real peaches, I’ve done quite a good job!
As some of you might remember, I was born in Russia, and these cookies were a very popular dessert when I was a kid. I wasn’t really interested in recipes from my childhood, but this year something has changed. I have shared some of the very common desserts including Chocolate Salami, Napoleone Cake, and Honey Cake “Medovik“. I am thinking to recreate a couple of other recipes this fall. Interesting, isn’t it? I believe this tendency might be related to the fact that I turned a certain age this year, so this could be some kind of nostalgia or an attempt to reconnect with the times I was a kid.
I had never made Peach Cookies before, so I googled the recipes, and I was surprised to find out a lot of similar ideas from different countries. I will not say this would be an authentic recipe from my childhood. First of all, I didn’t remember what some fillings were common back those years. I certainly remember jam and cream similar to thick custard. Also, it looks that dulce de leche (sometimes combined with chopped walnuts) was a common filling too. But although I do like dulce de leche, I opted out this idea. I did want something refreshing and summery.
Also, I believe back in those years people would dip these cookies into a syrop or something similar. I thought that dipping them into the peach liquor would elevate the taste to a more elegant level. I think that was a good idea as the cookies themselves are not super exciting to my liking. Alchohol makes everything better.
These Peach Cookies may look hard to make, but that’s not the case here. The actual baking isn’t complicated at all, but it takes a bit of your time to assemble them.
I won’t lie – these Peach Cookies look more extraordinary when they taste, in my book. You cannot expect too much from simple biscuits, sugar, and peach preserves. On the other hand, this is a very fun and charming summer dessert. Just don’t forget the peach liquor. On the side too :)
