Please may we have S’more? With Bacon? (Indoor Gourmet S’mores)

untitled-6-2-web

Can it possibly be Labor Day already? The last of summer.  The last hurrah.  No more beach picnics.  Kids are in school. Sigh.

But, even if you can’t have campfires (like here in the Sierras because of the drought) or it’s too cold to go to the beach, you can still make these Indoor Gourmet S’mores.

Cherry Clafouti…Gesundheit

Cherry Clafoutis

Cherry Clafoutis

Clafoutis definition:  Baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries, arranged in a buttered dish, and covered with a thick flan-like batter. The Clafoutis is dusted with powdered sugar, served warm and sometimes served with cream.

Gesundheit: used to wish good health, especially to one who has just sneezed.

I have made Clafoutis before, but with peaches or berries, which I guess isn’t really, technically, a clafoutis.  I also read somewhere that traditional Clafoutis are made with the pits still in the cherries.  When I discovered that we had no cherry pitter in the house and I couldn’t find one in a couple of stores I looked in, I felt like leaving the pits in.

Peach and Thyme Gelato in a Waffle cup

Peach and Thyme Gelato in a Waffle cup

It’s a good thing this recipe finishes up the last of the fresh, juicy peaches given to us by a friend of our youngest son because I was running out of clever headlines using peaches. Ha!

We had about 6-7 peaches left and Yes!Chef! said we needed (I use the term, “We”, loosely because Yes!Chef! does not make desserts) to make one more dessert with the remaining peaches. What else to make with a bunch of peaches but ice cream?  I love ice cream.  But this time I wanted to do something a little different, so I made gelato.
