A low oven temperature and a touch of fresh lime juice take ripe summer peaches to the next level. Serve alongside Rose-Geranium-and-Cardamom Ice Cream and Almond Cookies.


  • 6 ripe but firm peaches (about 2 ¼ pounds), halved, pitted, and cut into 1-inch wedges (about 6 cups)

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 225 degrees. In a bowl, gently toss peaches with lime juice and oil. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment. Place confectioners' sugar in a fine-mesh sieve and dust peaches evenly.

  2. Bake until peaches darken and begin to curl, about 1 hour. Let cool completely; serve.
