Labor Day is about taking a rest from the routine, and while that means something totally different in 2020, these easy desserts are still relevant. This Labor Day, you can catch me on TV baking one of these, which will complement any cookout. Tune in to WTOC Morning Break at 9 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 7 to see what I’m cooking up!
Head out to your local farmers’ market to shop for the fruit. These desserts celebrate the last of summer’s juicy peaches and plump blackberries. Your taste buds will thank you! As always, when you cook with locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients, they are hard to mess up.
Wishing you a happy Labor Day Weekend. Make it Some Kinda Good!
- Cinnamon Apple Crumb Pie
This pie comes together so quickly, you won’t believe how such little effort can produce such a flavorful result. A crumb topping is a great way to finish a pie or crumble when you don’t have two pie crusts. I also take a shortcut by using a store-bought pie crust.
Crumbles make the perfect summer dessert. Simple to throw together, they’re special enough for entertaining yet quick enough for a post-dinner weeknight treat. The end result of this Peach-Berry Crumble is a crunchy, buttery topping filled with warm, sweet fruit. Serve with cold vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream. Garnish with fresh mint.
- Georgia Peach & Blackberry Galette with Fresh Mint
A galette is just a fancy French term for a round, rustic, free-form cake. With its flaky, made-from-scratch crust and simple fruit filling, this impressive dessert bakes up in just 25 minutes. You’ll love the sweet flavor of the filling bursting with natural juices from the fruit. Delicious served warm or cold.
