Peach and Cherry Compote Dessert

By Paula Deen


Difficulty: Easy

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Servings: 5


  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 5 pitted and sliced peaches
  • 1 cup stemmed, pitted and chopped cherries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • cut into rustic strips, one per dish ready-made pie dough
  • chilled, for serving heavy whipping cream


Add butter to a large saucepan over medium high heat, and allow it to melt. Stir in the peaches, cherries and sugar. Turn heat to medium and cook until the fruit is melted and stewed all together, about 6-8 minutes.

Heat oil to 350 °F. Drop in pie dough scraps and fry until golden and crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain on a paper towel lined sheet tray.

Spoon compote into a decorative glass and drizzle lightly with chilled heavy cream. Top with a dough crisp.
