2013 Peach Cook-Off 2


Peach Pecan Muffins—Deanne Peterson 2 cups Quick Mix (See recipe below.) 1 egg, well beaten 1cup milk 2 tablespoons sugar Preheat oven to 425° F. Oil muffin tins. Measure Quick Mix into large bowl. Add sugar and stir in. Mix 2/3 cup dried peaches and ½ cup pecans. Add to Quick Mix. Crack egg into small bowl, beat well until light and foamy. Pour milk over egg and whisk and shake. Pour into Quick Mix. With large spoon gently stir until just moistened (about 15 strokes). Batter will be lumpy. Gently spoon batter into muffin tins. Bake at 425° for 25 minutes. Take muffins out of tins and put on rack to cool. Quick Mix 9 cups sifted flour ¼ cup sugar 2 cups shortening

3 tablespoons baking powder 1 tablespoon salt

Sift all dry ingredients together 3 times. Cut in shortening with pastry cutter till it looks like coarse cornmeal. Store in can or jar. Will keep several weeks. Makes 13 cups. Peach Cinnamon and Brown Butter Pull-Apart Bread—Cassie Ruesch Dough: 2 ¾ cups flour (plus ¼ cup or more, if needed) ¼ cup sugar 2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast ½ teaspoon salt 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 1/3 cup milk ¼ cup warm water 1 teaspoon vanilla 2 large eggs Filling: ½ pound ripe peaches, pitted, peeled and diced ¾ cup dark brown sugar 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon ¼ teaspoon ground ginger 3 tablespoons unsalted butter Icing: 1 cup powdered sugar 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened + leftover browned butter* 4 teaspoons milk 1 teaspoon vanilla Add flour, sugar and yeast to the bowl of a mixer fitted with a dough hook. Mix just to blend. Heat butter and milk in microwave just until butter melts, about 1 minute. Stir in water and vanilla. Checking with an instant read thermometer, cool to temperature indicated on yeast packet (usually 120-130°) Add eggs to dry ingredients. Mix on low, streaming in liquids slowly. Continue mixing until sticky dough forms. Add flour 1 tablespoon at a time (up to 4 or 6 tablespoons) until dough pulls away from sides. Dough will be tacky, but not too sticky to handle. Briefly knead dough, shape into ball and place in a greased bowl. Cover and set in a warm place to rise until doubled in size, 2013 Peach Cook-Off 3


Peach Cinnamon and Brown Butter Pull-Apart Bread cont. about 1 hour. Meanwhile, pit, peel and finely dice peaches. Whisk together brown sugar, cinnamon and ginger in a small bowl. Cook butter in a small saucepan over medium heat until browned (will have nutty aroma). Transfer to a small, heatproof bowl. Spray a 9 x 5” bread pan with baking spray. Once risen, punch down, cover and let rest 5 minutes. Roll dough out into a large rectangle roughly 12 x 24 inches. Dough will be fairly thin. Brush brown butter over top of dough. You don’t need to use it all, just enough to cover the dough. Sprinkle evenly with brown sugar and spice mixture—I used about 2/3 of it. Using a pizza cutter, cut into 6 equal strips. Sprinkle about 1/5 of the peaches over one strip of dough, then stack another strip of dough on top. Repeat, adding peaches and stacking dough strips with remaining dough. Cut stacked strips into 6 equal stacks of squares. Stuff stacked squares vertically into prepared 9 x 5 pan. Cover and let rise 30-45 minutes in a warm place. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake about 35-45 minutes or until no longer doughy in the center. Bread should register 190° in the center when done. If bread starts to get too brown before it’s ready, cover loosely with foil and continue baking. Remove from oven, cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully invert bread onto serving platter. Combine all icing ingredients and whisk to combine. Icing should be thick and paste-like. Do not thin. Spread over warm bread. Best served the same day it is baked. Can be stored at room temperature for up to 2 days. *I had about 1 tablespoon of leftover browned butter. If you don’t have any leftover browned butter, substitute 1 tablespoon of softened butter. Peach Scones with Maple Pecan Glaze—Jessica Grogan 2 cups flour 4 tablespoons sugar 1 tablespoon baking powder ¾ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon cinnamon 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 7 tablespoons chilled butter, cut into small chunks ¾ cup milk 2 large peaches, peeled, chopped and chilled Glaze 2 tablespoons butter 1 cup powdered sugar

¼ cup maple syrup ¼ cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 420°. On a clean surface, mix all dry ingredients with the butter and run over the pile with a rolling pin to flatten the butter chunks. Mix and roll one more time, then add ingredients to a bowl. The mixture should resemble course crumbles. Add milk and stir, just until moistened. Divide dough into two sections and form each into an 11 x 6” rectangle on a floured surface. Add the peaches to the top of one rectangle, then layer the second rectangle of dough onto the top. Seal the edges. Cut the scones in half lengthwise, then in thirds horizontally, then cut each of the 6 rectangles diagonally to form 12 triangles. (A pizza cutter works best.) Try to seal bits of each open edge to help keep the peaches from falling out. It is not important 2013 Peach Cook-Off 4


Peach Scones with Maple Pecan Glaze cont. to be thorough with sealing the edges; it will be a bit of a sloppy mess but they will bake wonderfully, even if a lot of the peaches are exposed. Place the scones on a greased baking sheet and bake at 420° for 18 minutes. To prepare the glaze, melt the butter and syrup over medium heat. Whisk in the powdered sugar until smooth, then add the pecans. Drizzle over the scones immediately and serve. Enjoy! Peach Stuffed Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rolls—Arla Sanders recipe adapted from Saveur, via Joy the Baker Dough: 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (or 1 packet) 1/2 teaspoon, plus 1/4 cup sugar 1/2 cup milk, room temperature 2 tablespoons light brown sugar 1/2 teaspoon vanilla 1 egg 1 egg yolk 2 3/4 cups flour, sifted, plus more for kneading 3/4 teaspoons salt 1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature Filling: 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup dark brown sugar 1/2 cup roasted, chopped pecans 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves 2 tablespoons maple syrup 4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 1 1/2 cups fresh peaches, peeled and cut into small pieces Icing: 2 cups confectioners sugar

1/4 cup milk

To begin making the dough, combine yeast, 1/2 teaspoon sugar and 1/4 cup water (heated to 115° F). Stir to combine and let sit about 10 minutes. It should get foamy and frothy. Add remaining 1/2 cup sugar, milk, light brown sugar, vanilla, egg and egg yolk. Beat with a whisk until well combined. Add flour and salt and fit dough hook onto a stand mixer. Using the mixer on medium-high, knead the dough for four minutes. Add the butter and continue to knead using the stand mixer for about six minutes. At this point, the dough will still be fairly sticky. Place the dough on a well-floured surface and knead an additional 1/3 cup flour into the dough. Form a ball of dough and place it in a bowl coated with cooking spray. Cover and let sit in a warm place for two hours to rise. Just prior to the two hour time frame ending, make the filling. To do so, combine sugar, dark brown sugar, pecans, cinnamon, salt and cloves. Add maple syrup and mix well. Set aside. Peel peaches and cut into small pieces. Set aside also, but in a separate bowl. Place the dough on a well-floured surface and using a floured rolling pin, roll into a 10x10 square. Gently, spread cream cheese (at room temperature) onto 2013 Peach Cook-Off 5


Peach Stuffed Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rolls cont. dough. Fold into thirds (like you’d fold a letter to place in an envelope). Then, fold the seams in, meeting both at the middle. Roll dough again using a floured rolling pin; this time into a 10x20 rectangle. At this point, cream cheese may sneak out a little, but it’s okay. Sprinkle dough with cinnamon filling, then peaches, leaving about 1 inch without filling around the edges. Beginning at a short edge, roll the dough up. Cut into eight slices and place each in a greased 9x13 baking dish. Cover and set aside an additional two hours to rise. Or, you can cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. (If refrigerating overnight, let sit 15-20 minutes on the counter before cooking.) Bake in a preheated 375° oven for 25-30 minutes. To make the frosting, whisk together confectioners sugar and milk. Using the whisk, drizzle generously over cinnamon rolls upon removing from the oven. Serve warm. Peach Bread Pudding—Sandy Campbell 4 cups torn French bread 14 oz sweetened condensed milk 3 large eggs ½ cup peach juice 2 to 2 1/2 cups diced canned peaches, juice reserved 1 ¼ cups hot water 4 tablespoons butter, melted 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 teaspoon cinnamon ½ cup raisins, if desired Preheat oven to 325°. Butter an 11 x 7” baking dish. Tear bread into bowl. In a large bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk and eggs; blend well. Add diced peaches, peach juice, hot water, melted butter, cinnamon and vanilla. Stir in bread, moistening completely. Turn into prepared baking dish. Bake 1 hour 10 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool slightly and serve warm with Vanilla Sauce. Serves 8. Vanilla Sauce ½ cup butter ½ cup sugar ½ cup firmly packed brown sugar ½ cup heavy whipping cream 1 tablespoon vanilla Combine all sauce ingredients except vanilla in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens and comes to a full boil (5-8 minutes). Stir in vanilla. Serve over bread pudding. Peach Naan Bread—Kay Mildenhall (Plain naan can also be made by omitting the peach mix.) Ingredients 1 medium peach, peeled 2 TBs of lemon juice 1 TB Balsamic Vinegar 1/4 cup sugar 2013 Peach Cook-Off 6


Peach Naan Bread cont. 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 ½ cup bread flour. (Can be replaced with all-purpose flour, but bread flour makes a fantastic naan.) 1 cup water, room temperature  1 cup milk, scalded  2 tsp. sugar  2 tsp. yeast  4 TB plain yogurt 1 tsp. salt  ¼ cup flour, for dusting during rolling out 1 TB butter, softened ¼ cup sesame seeds (for garnish on naan) 3-4 TBs softened butter (to spread on naan with sesame seeds) Take the peach and remove the pit before placing inside a blender. Mix until it turns to juice. Add to double boiler or sauté pan, and add lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and the ¼ cup of sugar. Whisk until consistent and cook for 8 minutes on medium heat, or until it turns brown. Remove from heat and allow it to cool to room temperature. Mix milk, water and sugar in a bowl. Sprinkle yeast and keep aside for 15-20 minutes. It will froth and give off heat, indicating that your yeast lives and is quite happy. Sift flour and salt in a bowl. In the center of the flour, add yogurt and 1 TB butter. Mix.  Now make soft, bread like dough, using required amount of liquid from the warm milk-water-yeast mix. The dough should be soft. So don’t be afraid to add a little more or a little less water than the recipe states. Add a little at a time, so that you don’t end up with very runny dough either. Knead it until smooth.  Cover with an oiled cling film and leave it to ‘mature’ in a warm place for 4-6 hours. It may take less in hot weather. The dough should rise to approximately double. You can make dough in a bread maker too. Simply place all ingredients and switch to ‘dough’. Knead the dough again. Allow it to double in size again. Knock it down and divide into 16 portions, rolling them into balls. Keep covered with a moist cloth. Heat oven or frying pan to 400 Farenheit. Naans placed on a cold tray/pan will stick and you will get terrible naan bread, so if using an oven, let the pan heat up inside the oven. I find that using an old cookie sheet in an oven works well. They also cook well on a large frying pan (I have a tawa, which works best, but a frying pan will do fine. Just make sure that the pan remains hot, and make sure to not burn your naan! Dust and roll out one ball at a time into an oblong/large tear shape, 8-9 inches in length. This can be done by rolling down one end more than other, or by pulling one end of the naan to elongate it. Roll out 3-4 naans at a time. Brush with butter (optional) and sprinkle a few sesame seeds on top. Press them in gently. Place 1 naan on a heated griddle/pan. When a few blisters appear, turn over. After about 30-40 seconds, turn over again. Cooking in an oven: Place 2 naans at a time on the pre-heated tray. Place the tray in the oven. When ready, they have a few brown blisters scattered on each surface. Remember that the tray needs to be re-heated fully, before you cook the next batch. Naan is best served warm! Serve with the peach mix. 2013 Peach Cook-Off 7


No-Bake Peaches & Cream Bars--Shani Dutton Crust: 2 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs 1 cube butter Mix together and press evenly into the bottom of a 9X13 pan.   Fruit/Jello Filling: 1 cup water 2 Tbsp. cornstarch 1/2 cup sugar 3 oz. pkg. peach jello 2 cups refridgerated peach purée (fresh peach in a blender) 2 cups fresh peaches, sliced Mix dry cornstarch and sugar in a small saucepan until well blended. then stir in 1 cup of water. Cook over medium low until thick (about 3-4 minutes of bubbling).  Stir in the Jello until desolved.

1 banana, mashed ½ cup butter, melted 1 tbs. real vanilla 1 tsp. baking soda 1 tsp. ginger

Combine peach and banana with sugar and butter, mix well and add eggs and vanilla. Combine all dry ingredients in separate bowl, add to fruit mixture. (Batter should stick slightly to a metal spoon, if not, add a little more flour.) Divide batter between a lined, 12-cup muffin tin. Bake @ 375 for about 15 minutes. Remove from oven when toothpick inserted in cake comes out a little less than clean. Cool in tins for about 5 minutes, then place on wire rack. When completely cool, use a pare knife to cut a circle the size of a quarter and *almost* the depth of the cupcake in the center top of each cupcake. (Set cut pieces aside to save for after the cupcakes are filled.) Fill each cupcake with about 1 tsp. of Raspberry-Blueberry jam and place the tops back on, pressing down so that they are as flush the cake as possible, but not pushing the filling out.

2013 Peach Cook-Off 10


PeachAna Cupcakes cont. ¼ tsp. nutmeg Heat all ingredients slowly in saucepan until bubbly. Cool slightly, and puree. Cool completely before filling cupcakes. (Add more water in small portions if necessary to make more workable.) Lemon-Almond-Coconut Cream Cheese Mousse 1 lemon- zest and juice 2 tsp. real almond extract ½ cup confectioner’s sugar 4-6 oz. cream cheese, very soft ½ cup confectioner’s sugar 2 cups heavy whipping cream Combine lemon juice, zest, almond extract, sugar and cream cheese in a bowl, mix well, until smooth and stir in coconut.

Peach Shortcake –Beth Lock Shortcake (vegan, no dairy) makes one dozen 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or soy milk 1 t apple cider vinegar or lemon juice 1 t pure vanilla extract or the scrapings of a vanilla bean 2 cups oat flour 2 T baking powder 1/2 cup dry sweetener (raw sugar or cane sugar) 1/2 t salt 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 1/2 cup almond butter Method: Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or use silicone baking mat. Do not omit this step as there is very little fat in these shortcakes and they will stick to an unprotected baking sheet. In a glass measuring cup mix together the plant-based milk and vinegar or lemon juice. Set aside to curdle for a few minutes then add the vanilla. In a medium bowl sift together the dry ingredients. Mix the applesauce and almond butter together in a small bowl with a fork. I find it mixes better if the almond butter is at room temperature. Cut the applesauce/almond butter mixture into the dry ingredients until crumbly. Add the milk mixture and stir until just moistened. Do not over mix. Use a 1/4 cup measure or ice cream scoop to scoop the scones out onto the baking sheet. Mist the measure with a little water first so the batter comes out easy. Bake for 20 - 24 minutes until a knife inserted through the center comes out clean. 2013 Peach Cook-Off 11

Cardamom Peach Pudding—Kay Mildenhall Ingredients: 1 medium peach, peeled 2 TBs of lemon juice 1 TB Balsamic Vinegar ¼ cup sugar ½ cup lightly packed light brown sugar 4 TBs cornstarch ½ tsp kosher salt (or 1/4 teaspoon table salt) 2 cups whole milk 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten 2013 Peach Cook-Off 15


Cardamom Peach Pudding cont. 2 TBs unsalted butter 2 tsp pure vanilla extract 4 green cardamom pods, skin removed (or 2 tsp cardamom powder) Take the peach and remove the pit before placing inside a blender. Mix until it turns to juice. Add to double boiler or sautÊ pan, and add lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, and the Ÿ cup of sugar. Whisk until consistent and cook for 8 minutes on medium heat, or until it turns brown. Remove from heat and allow it to cool to room temperature. Whisk together brown sugar, granulated sugar, cornstarch and salt with the peach reduction made earlier. Whisking constantly, add about a third of the milk to the pan until the mixture is smooth. Whisk in the egg yolks, and then whisk in the rest of the milk. Set the pan over medium heat and cook the pudding, whisking often, until it thickens and just begins to bubble, about 6 to 7 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and switch to a rubber or silicone spatula to stir the pudding constantly for another 5 minutes or so, scraping the bottom and sides of the pan as you go. When you can run a track through the pudding on the back of the spatula with your fingertip and the track remains, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in the butter and the vanilla.
