This is one of my favorite summer time desserts. Its simple, its seasonal and its fantastically delicious. Think warm peach pie and ice cream delicious (but without the added calories and extra work that pie crust adds).
Ready? If this isn’t already in your summer repertoire, you’ll be kicking yourself when you see how easy it is.
- A whole mess of peaches depending on how many you want to feed. A peach per person is usually good, but not less.
- Brown sugar (1-2 tsp/peach)
- Heavy cream (8oz)
- Sugar (1 heaping tsp)
- Vanilla (1/2 – 1 tsp)
Line a cookie sheet with tin foil and give it a light spritz of pan spray. Slice up your peaches (remove the stones) into nice size hunks and put the on the cookie sheet, very tightly packed together. Sprinkle with the brown sugar and a bit of cinnamon. Broil on high, right under the broiler, until the sugar is melted and the peaches are a bit charred. Remove from the oven.
Whip up your cream in a bowl with the vanilla and the white sugar. Serve the peaches in a bowl with a nice heapin’ helping of whip cream on top. Devour!
Pro-Tip: Make extra. Lots of extras.
