Peach Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies

September 19, 2014Teresa

Oh, my, Peach Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies are spectacular. I have to admit these were one of my favorite peach goodies that I made last month in an effort to use up all of our fresh peaches. These cookies do seem to dissolve in your mouth. I think that’s because they are made with oil as well as butter and have sugar and powdered sugar and cream of tartar in the ingredients. That combination is simply breathtaking. These cookies are soft and beyond delicious.

I love peaches and having peaches in desserts is one of my favorite things. Usually I have to settle for apples because they are available year round, but since we have our own peach trees now, it’s nice to be able to expand my repertoire of peach desserts with many new options.

I’ve made Peach Coffee Cakes, Peach Pies, Peach Cobblers, Peach Cookies, Peach Bars, Peach Cinnamon Rolls, and Peach Muffins. Each recipe has been wonderful whether it was an improvisation or a recipe made for peaches. We have had many happy recipients enjoy our peach goodies, too. 🙂

When I was hunting through recipes last month looking for ideas on desserts to make, I stumbled across my friend, Mimi’s, Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies. It’s a great recipe and one I’ve used before as a base for a cookie I wanted to add other ingredients too. I decided to give the recipe a whirl with peaches.

I’m so glad I did because it turned out beyond my wildest expectations. Peach Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies are delectable. It was so hard not to gobble all of these cookies up immediately! Fortunately (or unfortunately), sanity returned and I boxed them up for friends.

If you’re looking for an outrageous cookie your whole family will enjoy, I think you’ve found it in Peach Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies. These cookies are great for any party, summer or fall brunch or shower, afternoon snacks or family gatherings. But you’d better hurry. Peaches won’t be in season too much longer. Make up a batch of these sensational cookies while you still can.

Place sugar, powdered sugar, softened butter, eggs, salt, cream of tartar, baking powder and vanilla in a mixing bowl. I made a double batch so the pictures show more than for a single recipe.

Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes or until done. These cookies were whoppers. Smaller cookies will take less baking time.

I highly recommend using fresh peaches if you can get them. If you have to resort to frozen or canned peaches, dice them and pat them really dry with paper towels before adding to the batter. Otherwise, too much excess moisture will cause the cookies to flatten out and loose their shape and consistency.
