In this recipe, lightly stewed peaches offer a tempered tartness that plays well with vanilla ice cream and a sweet cookie crust, which stays crisp even as the ice cream melts. 

It also takes little effort to put together — just 30 minutes, though it does require a few hours firming up in the freezer. Should you find yourself at the beach with a half-hour to spare and an extra bag of peaches, this might be just what you’re looking for to finish a meal of fried fish and fresh corn. 

From Dailey’s in Atlanta, this recipe requires a food processor and a 9-inch pie pan.

Chop 2 cups of the peaches into small pieces and stir them into the sugar mixture (reserve the remaining 2 cups of peaches for the peach sauce, below).

Remove from heat and cool completely for about an hour.
