Herbed Goat Cheese with Peppered Peaches

Herbed Goat Cheese with Peppered Peaches

Now and then you make a dish that causes your taste buds to sing and my Herbed Goat Cheese with Peppered Peaches is definitely one of these recipes. Let’s just say it’s special!

The creamy herbed goat cheese is flavored with garden-fresh herbs and shallots and is topped with peaches that have been cooked with black pepper and basil. This interesting flavor combination screams summer and it’s not too bad to look at either!

Consider whipping this one up over the holiday weekend before opening a bottle of bubbles or rose wine. This appetizer with a little EXTRA, would also be ideal to take to a gathering of friends, it’s guaranteed to disappear!

If you’re interested in making something with the colors of our flag, consider my Pavlova with Berries and Cream. I published this beauty last year, and not only is it stunning, it is also irresistible! With red-white-and-blue on my mind, I can’t help but think that my Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Bread would be an amazing breakfast; so special if you’re expecting friends and family this weekend.

Herbed Goat Cheese Cake with Peppered Peaches and Basil

Goat Cheese Cake

6 ounces fresh chèvre

2 tablespoons heavy cream

1 shallot, finely minced

2 tablespoons each, fresh basil, fresh parsley, and fresh chives, all finely minced

½ teaspoon pepper

¼ teaspoon salt

Peppered Peaches and Basil

1 pound of fresh or frozen sliced peaches cut into small chunks

½ cup sugar

1 tablespoon butter

¼ cup fresh basil leaves plus more for garnish

½ teaspoon pepper

Pinch salt

Dash cayenne

1 loaf of French Bread

Using a hand-held mixer, beat cheese and cream together with herbs and seasonings until light.  Line a small deep dish with plastic wrap.  Spoon cheese mixture into the dish and press firmly, cover with wrap, and place in the refrigerator to chill for several hours or overnight.  Meanwhile, in a chef’s pan, melt butter and add peaches and sugar to the pan, cook stirring often until the sugar has dissolved and peaches are breaking down about 4 minutes.  Add seasoning and basil and cook for 1-2 more minutes.  Remove from heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes.  Remove cheesecake from the refrigerator and turn upside down on the serving dish to release it from the dish, remove plastic wrap and pour the peaches on top. Garnish with fresh basil and serve with French bread or crackers.
