Notes: so, I under baked mine a little and the peaches weren’t ripe enough, but the flavor was right on. I had never baked with pomegranate before, and they didn’t add a ton of flavor like I hoped, but they add a great crunch and a ton of color which was nice. If baked to the right temp this would be killer, and the mascarpone really always makes a dessert wonderful! This is a perfect fall scarf wearing kind of dessert you want to curl up with and watch Annie Hall, and is served best with good company…thanks Travis Maggie and Hailey!
