Fresh Peaches & Cream Cookies

Fresh Peaches & Cream Cookies 

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt 
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, softened 
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed 
1 egg 1 tsp vanilla extract 
1 1/4 cup fresh, diced peaches (skin removed)

Glaze: 
1/2 cup powdered sugar 
1-2 tbsp cream (or enough to make a drizzle consistency) 
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Stir together and set aside.

Using a sharp knife, remove the skin from peaches and cut into small chunks. Place the diced peaches on a paper towel and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add egg and vanilla, beat until combined. Add flour mixture and beat on low speed until well incorporated. Gently fold in the diced peaches.

Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop in rounded spoonfuls on cookie sheets, leaving plenty of room between cookies to allow for some spreading. Bake for about 10-12 minutes until light golden brown. Cool about 1 minute on cookie sheets and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

If using glaze: Mix together the powdered sugar, cream and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle lightly over the cookies while still warm, allow to cool. Serve with a cold glass of milk and enjoy!
