It’s Friday. How about some dessert?

Peaches (although deserved) get a lot of the spotlight during the summer months, while nectarines and plums sort of hang back in the shadows. However dare I say, I like nectarines better? Besides sitting on my porch and eating one by hand, my second favorite way to enjoy nectarines is baking them.

This dessert is to die for.

The warm tender fruit with the cool vanilla ice cream works so well in contrast with the buttery oatmeal crumb topping. The flavor is incredible, but I couldn’t help myself and so I added a few fresh thyme leaves to the top, for a little herbaceous surprise.

no regrets.
