Following the graduation ceremony, invite family and friends back to your home for dessert, coffee and an opportunity to congratulate the new graduate. Plantation Peach Pie makes an ideal dessert choice for the occasion because everything can be prepared well in advance and quickly assembled when you return home.
This is actually more of a shortcake than a pie. The recipe calls for the crust to be molded into a large circle, but a heart or individual rounds are other possible choices. Top with scoops of rich ice cream and spicy peach sauce.
PLANTATION PEACH PIE
8 peaches, peeled and chopped
1 cup bourbon
2 cups water
2 to 3 whole cloves
2 2/3 cups buttermilk baking mix
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
