One of my favorite summer foods is fresh peaches! I especially like Colorado peaches. They are always good and worth the wait! Pa Lloyd’s favorite way to eat peaches is with short cake (the easy Bisquick kind). I just made him his third short cake. Since I have to watch my carbs, I have only indulged having it once, which leaves him a lot of short cake to eat! Luckily peaches are good by themselves. My doctor’s three month time limit is soon approaching! I am going to share a peach dessert with you that comes from my friend Pat Knewtson. Unless I have company I won’t make it this year. There is a limit to my self control!
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon sugar

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
