Peaches n' Irish Cream Crumble

July 14, 2013
Author Notes

Peaches n' Cream is a true Southern dish. Fresh peaches topped with freshly whipped cream can't be beat. But something that might come close is this interpretation of the dish. Peaches baked in a mixture of Irish Cream Whiskey and sugar and topped witha crumble of flour, oats, brown sugar and butter. All that you would need to take it over the top is a dollop of Irish Cream flavored whipped cream. —lakelurelady

Review
I have been a serious cook from the time I first took an introductory course in French Cooking from a professional chef and cookbook author. My first love is French cooking but I also value the importance of fresh local ingredients. The freshest ingredients seasoned right and prepared with love will result in the perfect meal.
