Roasted Peaches with Goat Cheese and Lavender Honey

Roasted Peaches with Goat Cheese 'n honey
When we were in Paris this winter, we spent an afternoon just wandering in the St. Germain area, poking around the shops and kiosks. I particularly enjoyed the fact that you could buy a mug of warm red wine on the street and sip away as you browsed.
Good boy. Buy me wine.
That wine probably accounted for the fact that I was a little loose with my euros and bought a few things I really didn’t need, like this:
Miel de Lavande
On the other hand, I only picked it up because I knew I wanted to try to recreate it at home with our own local honey and lavender from our garden. This peach dessert just screams summer, quietly . . . and delicately. With chevre from the farm up the road, blueberries from our garden, a drizzle of honey and a sprinkling of lavender blossoms, this dessert is one I will make again and again. So simple and sooooo good.

For four servings:
2 ripe organic peaches, peeled and pitted
2 tsp. butter
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
4 Tbsp. goat cheese
2 Tbsp. honey, slightly warmed in the microwave
a few fresh blueberries or other summer berries
culinary lavender blossoms

Preheat oven to 425 F. Place the peeled, pitted peaches in a baking dish. Spoon 1/2 tsp. butter and 1/4 tsp. vanilla into each of the cavities. Place in a preheated oven and roast for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool slightly.
Fill each of the peach cavities with 1 rounded Tbsp. goat cheese, toss a few fresh berries around the peach, drizzle with warmed honey, sprinkle with a few lavender blossoms (go easy, too much and it will taste like a scented soap!) and serve.
