What you’ll love about Peaches and Cream Cookies

Cookies 101

Just about all cookies start out the same way: creaming butter and sugar, adding the egg, and mixing in the already combined dry ingredients. This peach cookie recipe isn’t much different, except that you’re going to fold in the fresh peaches at the end and whip up a tasty cream topping to frost the cookies.

Scraping your bowl in between mixing is essential, and don’t forget to scrape off the beaters or paddle. I love using my stand mixer for cookies and just about all kinds of baking, but you can also use an electric hand mixer for this recipe.

Ingredients

Using perfectly ripe peaches really sets these cookies apart. But make sure they’re not over-ripe! You want them still firm but not hard. This will make dicing them easier, and if the cookies are too ripe, they’ll give off too much liquid, and your cookies may not turn out well.

  • All-purpose flour
  • Salt – I use kosher salt. If you use table salt, cut the salt amount in half.
  • Baking soda
  • Butter – I use salted butter. You want the butter to be at room temperature and not super-soft.
  • Sugar – White granulated sugar.
  • Egg – Just 1 large egg.
  • Vanilla extract – Pure or artificial extract.
  • Peaches – You’ll need 4-5 peaches in total, diced small.
  • Peach jam

For the topping:

  • Heavy whipping cream – Kept cold.
  • Vanilla extract – Pure or artificial extract.
  • Powdered sugar – Also known as icing sugar or confectioner’s sugar.
  • Vanilla pudding powder – Just a few spoonfuls to help the whipped cream set up.
  • Peaches – Finely diced.

How To Make The Best Peaches And Cream Cookies

  1. Whisk the all-purpose flour, salt, and baking soda together in a bowl.
  2. With the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of your stand mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.
  4. Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined.
  5. Add the peach jam and combine, scraping down the sides as needed.
  6. Remove the bowl and fold in the peaches using a spatula.
  7. Scoop the cookies with a 1.5-inch cookie scoop or large spoon and place them 2-inches apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. They will spread.
  8. Bake the cookies at 375-F for about 12 minutes. Cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.

To Make The Topping:

  1. Whip the whipping cream and vanilla until soft peaks form.
  2. Add the icing sugar and vanilla powder and beat until stiff peaks form.
  3. Fold in the diced peaches.

To Assemble:

  1. Lay the peach cookies flat and top each with a generous spoonful of the whipped cream topping.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • These cookies are best eaten right away. The peaches in them will soften the cookies if they’re left out for too long. If you’re not going to eat them right away, pop them into the freezer.
  • The topping will last 2-3 days if tightly wrapped in the fridge.
  • Keep the cookie dough in the fridge between batches, especially if your kitchen is warm.
  • No peach jam? You can use apricot jam instead.

How To Tell When Peaches and Cream Cookies Are Baked?

Take the cookies out of the oven when they are golden brown around the edges and are lightly set up in the middle. They will harden up as they cool.

Storage

These peach cookies are best eaten as soon as they are cool. The peaches in them will soften the cookies if you leave them sitting out for too long. If you’re not going to eat the cookies immediately, pop them into the freezer and thaw them as needed.

The whipped cream and peach topping will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days. Just give it a good stir before using it.

    These peach cookies were so delicious. Love the freshness from the peaches. Next time, I’ll make double the recipe and freeze them too.

    You are SO right about eating these right away. Amazing recipe, and I love using the jam and fresh. Luckily I had a friend’s kids over and they helped to devour most of them before the peaches softened. Clearly, kid approved!
