Ingredients

CINNAMON VANILLA GLAZE

  • 1 c heavy whipping ream 1 T reserved
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 c powdered sugar

FRIED PEACHES

  • 4 peaches peeled, pitted, each sliced into 6 slices
  • 1 packages of graham crackers
  • ½ c flour
  • 1 Tablespoon cinnamon
  • c sugar
  • ¼ Tablespoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ c milk
  • oil for frying canola, peanut, coconut
  • powdered sugar to dust

Instructions

  • Scald the heavy cream in heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat, stirring frequently. Add 1 t cinnamon.
  • The cream will begin to steam, as soon as it starts to boil, remove from heat and pour into glass bowl. Add vanilla, then whisk in powdered sugar.
  • In large frying pan, pour oil to ½" deep. Begin to heat over medium heat.
  • Process graham crackers in food processor or blender until finely ground. Pour into bowl. Add flour, cinnamon, sugar, and salt. Mix well. Separate half into another bowl.
  • In separate bowl, whisk eggs and ¼ c milk. Separate half into another bowl.
  • Once oil is hot enough for frying (flick water into it and it immediately begins to sizzle gently. If it sizzles fiercely, it's too hot.), dip peach slices into egg mixture, then cracker mixture. Repeat so you have two layers of egg/cracker mixture. Halfway through your peaches, begin using second bowls of graham cracker crumb mixture and egg mixture.
  • Drop slices into hot oil and let cook for about a minute. Once that side is firm and golden, flip over with tongs and let other side cook until golden. Depending on how big your pan is, you could fry 4-6 peaches at a time. Do not overcrowd pan. Place on paper towel-lined plate. Finish remaining peaches.
  • Serve hot with warm dipping sauce.

Notes

HOW DO I STORE THE GLAZE

If you are making the glaze ahead of time, or have leftover glaze you will just need to store it in an air tight container in the fridge. It will be good for 7-10 days. 

HOW DO I TELL IF A PEACH IS RIPE? 

A Peach is perfectly ripe when you can press into the peach and it will slightly give. If it doesn't give at all it isn't quite ready, and if it is mushy then you waited a little too long. Chances are the peach will still be extra sweet and you will be able to use it, just handle with care. Unless it's like applesauce then don't use it.
