Tequila-Soaked Watermelon Wedges
This grown-up fruit dessert borrows flavors from margaritas. Tequila and Triple Sec infuse the watermelon slices, which also get a spray of lime juice and a sprinkling of coarse salt. The longer the watermelon soaks, the more flavorful it becomes -- one more reason to save any leftover slices.
Caramelized Skillet Peaches
Deliciously caramelized and juicy peaches with a hint of cinnamon and bourbon (or rum) make the dreamiest ice cream topping. Martha made this recipe on Martha Bakes episode 505.

Rhubarb is delicious paired with sweet fruits such as raspberries -- or strawberries or peaches -- to temper its tartness.
Cardamom-Scented Peach-Apricot Cobblers
These single servings of peach cobbler have some exciting surprises under their drop-biscuit tops: cardamom and allspice. While the spices work to perfume each and every bite, sliced apricots bring a touch of acidity which helps to make every bite more delicious than the last.
A cobbler is a fruit dessert with a thick top layer of crust. In this version of the classic, spiced apricot wedges are arranged atop a toasted-almond batter. Baking puffs up the cake, so only bits of fruit peek through.
