  • Cook Time 0:20
  • Estimated Cost $8.50

Semifreddos are just the thing when you want to serve a special frozen dessert but don’t have an ice cream maker. The brown sugar in the imparts a unique caramel flavor to the fresh peach custard making these truly memorable. Serve with a sprig of mint and maybe a few fresh raspberries.


  • 6 ripe peaches, peeled, diced $4
  • 1 pint half-and-half $1.50
  • 1 cup brown sugar Pantry
  • 3 egg yolks, lightly beaten $1.50 for 6 eggs
  • pinch salt Pantry
  • 9 foil muffin cup liners $1.50 for 50

Recipe Serves 9


  1. Using a blender or food processor, puree half of the diced peaches. Set aside.
  2. In a medium pot, heat half-and-half and brown sugar over medium heat, whisking until steamy (but not boiling).
  3. Pour about 1/2 cup warm mixture into the egg yolks and whisk to mix. Slowly add the egg mixture to the half-and-half/sugar mixture, whisking constantly. Add the salt. Continue whisking until a custard thick enough to coat the back of a spoon forms.
  4. Pour custard into a bowl and allow to cool (refrigerating helps) for 30 minutes.
  5. Add peach puree and diced peaches to cooled custard. Set aside.
  6. Line 9 regular muffin cups with foil liners. Carefully pour the peach-custard mixture into the muffin cups.
  7. Freeze for at least 2 hours, or until needed.

these sound delicious! i’m wondering if it would work to still use the fresh peaches but cook them before hand? i have a weird allergy to fresh stone fruits, but if they are cooked (or canned) i am good to go!
