Today is the perfect day to share all the peach recipes with you because tomorrow I begin hosting Stone Fruit Week and have some awesome recipes for you. But first we are sharing peach recipes this week for our From Our Dinner Table group. I'm excited because peach picking season should open up this week and now I'll have a ton of new recipes to try!
I have already made several peach muffin and beverage recipes so I knew those were out of the question when I began brainstorming what to make for this event. I thought about making a cake but it's been pretty hot outside so I haven't wanted to use the oven and I'm not back to work yet so we don't really have anywhere to take the cake which means we would eat it. I finally decided on cookies and these Peach Ginger Cookies are really delicious.
These aren't your average crispy on the outside soft and chewy on the inside cookies. No these cookies are more of an all around soft and buttery cookie with fresh juicy peaches and ginger mixed into them. They are very easy to make and the recipe is easily doubled or tripled.
The dough is really soft when making these because instead of all granulated sugar it has half granulated and half powdered. This is good because it makes for a softer and more melt in your mouth cookie. Then only baking soda is used instead of baking powder so they don't spread out much either.
In the end these cookies pack a lot of flavor. The peach flavor is strong and the ginger flavor is subtle. If you are looking for more of a strong ginger flavor I'd simply add in some crystalized ginger to the mix but I think these are light and soft and perfect for the end of summer. Serve them up with a big glass of tea or lemonade or have them after dinner with a big ole cup of coffee.
