My husband John celebrated another year older today. He saw a day that went from light snow in the morning to sunshine, to rain, to sunshine to light snow. Yes this is another spring day on the mountain. This will be our 5th spring in Zigzag and the earliest we have seen daffodils and primroses in the yard in full bloom. John ended his B-day with his favorite birthday dessert dumplings, this year he wanted peach. Enjoy the following recipe and think of the summer days to come and picking fresh peaches.
In large pot combine peaches, sugar and flour. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the stove and add the vanilla and butter. Let set from 10 minutes to cool.
Divide dough into 4 pieces, roll out one piece to a 10-inch circle. Place a 1/4th of the peach mixture in the center (about 1/2 cup heaping). Fold up all 4 sides to the center and place in a 13×9 greased baking dish. Repeat with the remaining 3 pieces of dough. Bake in a preheat 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until golden brown. Cool for about 20 minute before eating.
