Peach Spice Cookies

September 7, 2014Teresa

Peach Spice Cookies are incredible. These rich, decadent cookies are filled with peaches, almonds, cinnamon and cloves, then a lavish lemon buttercream frosting is spread on top. I couldn’t gobble these fabulous cookies down quickly enough! Anything with a real frosting (not simply a glaze) is an added bonus for me because I love frostings added to cookies, bars and cakes.

I’m one of those oddballs who would prefer eating the icing instead of the cookie or cake in most cases. 🙂 I just love frosting and this one is lovely with a nice, delicate lemon touch.

I was hunting through my recipes last month looking for another one to use up some peaches. I came across one from my best recipe pin-pal, Mimi Pownall. Mimi and I got to know each other when we attended church together in Largo, Florida back in the 1980s. Her youngest son and my oldest son were only one week apart in age so our kids were always in the nursery and school together, too.

When I typed up Mimi’s recipes for her into a cookbook back in 1984, she had a recipe for Banana Spice Cookies. I used that recipe to make this heavenly Peach Spice Cookies recipe.

If you enjoy spices like cinnamon and cloves, you will love them with peaches. Especially in these cookies! They have a lemon buttercream frosting added on top  which is sensational. The frosting contrasts amazingly with the spicy flavor adding extra zest to the recipe. These soft cookies have a delightful, crunchy and chewy texture, too, because of the almonds. I think everyone who tries Peach Spice Cookies will soon fall in love with them. I sure did. 😉

Each Peach Spice Cookie is filled with peaches and almonds and flavored with both cinnamon and cloves for a nice spicy flavor.
