Baked Peaches and Raspberries with Lemon Curd

Baked Peaches and Raspberries with Lemon Curd recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

On a night when I wanted a cobbler, but didn't really want to bake; this was the ideal dessert. Fresh peaches and raspberries are lightly tossed with lemon curd and then baked until soft. The fruit is sweet and tart and unbelievably fragrant when it comes out of the oven. Topped with barely sweetened whipped cream, this was a much nicer dessert than I anticipated. This would also be delicious with vanilla ice cream.

Baked Peaches and Raspberries with Lemon Curd
Yield: 2-4 servings
(printable recipe)

2 ripe peaches, sliced thin
1 cup raspberries
1/4 cup lemon curd, store-bought should work as well

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a small baking dish. The dish I used will hold about 3 cups. In a medium size glass bowl, warm the lemon curd until it is a thin consistency. (About 30 seconds in the microwave worked for me.) Add the fruit and toss gently to coat all the pieces. Bake for 15 minutes. The fruit should soften, but not fall apart. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream. Enjoy!

  2. Sometimes just-fruit desserts like this are really all you need and I bet the lemon curd really adds something special!

  6. You and I are frequently on the same food wavelength. I just posted orange curd today. I would love to get to meet you sometime...I think we would be great friends in real life (not that this is fake life). This lemon curd idea with the peaches sounds like heaven. We've had 100+ temps this last week. YUCK!
