More Recipe Tips
I didn’t peel the peaches, but you could totally do that if you prefer.
Half all purpose flour and half whole wheat flour was used, but you could use just all-purpose if you like.
To soften butter (that has just come out of the refrigerator) quickly, cut into small squares and place on a plate, in one layer. Let sit at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes or so until softened.
