When you don’t have a grill readily available, just turn on the broiler! Simple, eh? I got a bag of peaches last weekend with the intention of making peach pie. However, between the heat and falling short about 2 cups of peaches, I decided to do something much simpler. This is one of my favorite summer treats- relatively guilt free and amazingly sweet.
- Preheat the broiler and move the oven rack 6 inches away from the heat source.
- Halve the peaches, remove the pits and sprinkle with a light layer of brown sugar and cinnamon.
- Place the peaches face down on a foil lined broiler pan or a baking sheet. Broil for 3-5 minutes, until tender and caramelized.
- Serve warm with your favorite ice cream, fresh whipped cream, goat cheese or fresh ricotta!
Tip: If you want to leave the skin on, brush it with a bit of melted butter so that it doesn’t char.
