    Cut those nectarines in half and throw them on the grill - you can even put some bbq sauce on them or leave 'em plain and serve with vanilla ice cream - done.

      You need to let us know what dessert ingredients you already have at home, to be able to help....

          Looks like you have the makings for a pie at least. You don't say what kind of pudding mix you have, but most will do fine for a quick filling. Maybe the nectarines peeled and sliced would serve as a garnish on top? The pudding mix should have a recipe on the box, or maybe inside.

            Nectarine clafouti is super easy and for some reason people think it is super hard to make. To make it extra special Deborah Madison suggests topping it with a crip topping (e.g. flour, butter, sugar, spices), and I have put cocoa nibs in too. Super easy. just blend the ingredients - milk, eggs, flour, vanilla, sugar, salt - in your processor, blender, or whisk by hand, pour over halved nectarines and bake!

            Of course you oculd do a nectarine crumble too with the ingredients you have.

            To make it special, you can add herbs (even dried thyme or rosemary) in moderation to any of the desserts we have listed. I am a huge fan of that.

            Chocolate brownies with caramel sauce.
