Peach Almond Coconut Cookies

September 4, 2015Teresa

Peach Almond Coconut Cookies have a lot going for them. I love peaches and just can’t seem to get enough of them. Add a few of my other favorite ingredients like almonds and coconut and you have a match made in heaven. These cookies are crunchy rather than soft. The almonds and coconut add a nice, chewy texture. I left off cinnamon so you can really savor the other flavors instead.

Back in July, our harvest of six peach trees came in rapidly. Unfortunately, I only got about a third of the harvest in and made desserts before I had to start packing up all of our belongings as we sold our house and had to be out in a couple of weeks. I will say taking care of peach trees is not for the faint of heart–nor is it cheap!

Peach trees are a lot of work – at least here in Texas. We spent many hours spraying (with an organic spray), pruning and then harvesting the peaches. We had one peach tree that was a white peach flesh, one that yielded tear-drop shaped peaches, and most of them were cling rather than freestone peaches. Cling peaches are a lot harder to cut up than freestones. Regardless, our days as peach tree owners are over. From now on I’ll have to get my peaches at the grocery store like everyone else!

We have about four to five months before our new home is ready, and we are definitely not planning to plant any more peach trees. Even still, that doesn’t mean I won’t be able to enjoy lots of fresh peach desserts each summer and fall. 🙂 We’ve already had several kinds of muffins, cakes and cookies and peaches are still available in the stores so more will be on the way!

I loved these scrumptious Peach Almond Coconut Cookies. And, if you enjoy crunchy cookies, I’ll think you’ll like them too. If you’re looking for a crunchy cookie and a great way to use fresh peaches, then give Peach Almond Coconut Cookies a try. You will see them disappear so quickly, you will be amazed.
