You will first start off this recipe by placing a skinned and wedged peach into a food processor. You will make a peach puree that will resemble applesauce. (See below photo)

Using a fresh peach instead of an extract, like my blueberry and strawberry meringue recipes, makes for an irresistible flavor.

When it comes to making the cookies, you will need a star tip, pastry bag and a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You will pipe the cookies onto your baking sheet so they look like these:

Depending on the size of the cookie you pipe onto your baking sheet will determine how many cookies you get out of this batch. We got about 48 cookies.

  1. Hi! I love the simplicity of your recipe. I was wondering though, could I use the peaches (and juice?) from the Dole snack cups? And if so, how many of the cups could I use? For example, I think there 4-4 oz cups in a package. I’m trying to find simple cookie type recipes that would allow me to puree the peaches from those cups so that I can use them up… thanks so much!

    1. I am unsure if using fruit cups would work or not. I don’t know how many fruit cups would equal a peach. I tried Googling but couldn’t find a great answer to your question. I am sorry.
