Its summer time! Dont those words conjure up the most glorious images? Every season has its devotees but I bet summer has the greatest number of fans. Sunshine, flowers, fresh fruit ahh, yes.
Mike and I love to host summer backyard get-togethers. Good friends and great food are a superb combo for ushering in a relaxing time of enjoyment. We frequently fire up the grill, which simplifies food prep. I like to have a stellar dessert ready to linger over and these meringue roses with cinnamon glazed peaches fill the bill. You can buy peaches any time and fresh peach season runs from mid-April to October, but I always associate them with summer. I use the Burnbrae Farms Simply Egg Whites liquid eggs for the meringues, which makes prep really easy.
This dessert is quite simple. Its satisfying, but not too heavy and the meringue roses never fail to impress guests. Basically all you have to do is beat the liquid eggs with cream of tartar; add sugar, a bit of vinegar and almond extract and bake. I use a 2D Wilton tip to pipe the roses. Its not difficult to do and the meringue is a source of quality protein and no fat. Everybody wins!
For the grilled peaches, brush the peaches with the jam, butter and cinnamon mixture. Spray the grill with nonstick cooking spray and grill the peaches for a minute or two on each side. Simple!
