It’s worth making, not only because it’s delicious, but for the way it will make your kitchen smell. Warm, vanilla-scented peaches spiked with a hint of Bourbon make this a dessert to write home about.
Here’s what you’ll need:

For the filling:
- peaches: fresh, about 6 cups
- cornstarch: or tapioca starch to thicken the fruit mixture
