This pie downright beautiful when made with white nectarines. Slip the skins off the fruit, slice in half and arrange in an unbaked pie shell. Combine heavy cream, sugar, cinnamon, flour and almond extract, and then pour this lovely concoction over and around the nectarines. Bake in a very hot oven for 40 minutes.
A peachy use of the season's bounty is Marilyn Schroeder's fruitful dessert. 'I bring this juicy crumble to get-togethers of all kinds,' she writes from Alexandria, Minnesota. 'Crushed macaroons make a delightfully different topping for the blueberries and nectarines. For a special treat, serve it with low-fat frozen yogurt.'

I added fresh, ripe nectarines and apricots to this sour cherry pie. These fruits are drupe fruits meaning they are fleshy with a hard stone or seed in the middle. The pie was summery and delicious! I really like to use turbinado sugar--it's less processed and has a good flavor--but white sugar would be fine, too.
Short of serving store-bought ice cream, you won't find a simpler, more delicious dessert than this fruit cobbler. Use any juicy summer fruit: peaches, nectarines, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries. And if you use frozen berries, this dessert can be assembled in less than 10 minutes.
By varying the fruit a bit, this salad can work for all seasons. Passion fruit make a great addition if they are available. In the summer, add lots of fresh berries and melons. In the winter, try adding dried cranberries or apricots. Fresh juice adds a bit of bite and also keeps the fruit from turning if you are making this ahead.
