Here’s a “must try” recipe to prepare before the fresh local peaches are gone. Fresh Peach & Sour Cream Squares are creamy and delicious, but very quick and easy. Since these squares are best served lukewarm or at room temperature, this dessert can be prepared early in the day, so you’ll have time to finish whatever else is on the evening dinner menu.
The buttery crust goes together very quickly; it’s just a cake mix and butter. The peaches can be peeled quickly by placing them in boiling water for one minute, then plunging them in a bowl of cold water. Then all that’s left is to whisk together four simple ingredients for the topping, which is flavored with freshly grated nutmeg.
When the peaches are gone, you’ll want to make this dessert with other fruit: raspberries, blueberries, or apples, depending on the season. It’ll become a favorite with family members and guests alike.
