1 tablespoon sour cream

8 thin slices of good quality white bread

1/2 pound thinly sliced prosciutto

1/4 cup each finely chopped fresh tarragon, Italian flat-leaf parsley, and basil

Peach jam:

3 peaches, pitted and chopped

1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes 

1/4 cup honey

1 tablespoon water

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 


1/2 cup cream cheese


  1. In a large sauce pan, combine the peaches, red pepper flakes, honey, water, and salt, and pepper, to taste and place the pan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, then lower the heat and simmer slowly for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let the mixture cool, then blend it in a blender or food processor until smooth.
  2. In a small bowl, stir the cream cheese and sour cream together until well combined. 
  3. Divide the cream cheese mixture among 4 slices of bread, reserving a little bit of cream cheese for garnish. Spread the peach jam on the other slices of bread. Top the cream cheese slices with a few slices of prosciutto and top with the slices with jam. Slice in half. 
  4. In a small bowl, blend the chopped tarragon, parsley, and basil then spread them out on a plate. 
  5. Spread a light coating of reserved cream cheese on the exposed sliced end of each sandwich half and dip in the chopped herbs. Arrange the sandwiches on a plate and serve.
