Too Many Peaches? Bake Some

Here’s a quick way to use up any peaches that are threatening to get too old during this time of year when we have a glut of delicious fruit.

Save this idea for when you just don’t have the time or energy to make a peach pie with perfect pie crust, a  peach cobbler, or any one of those American fruit desserts.

Baked peaches could not be simpler.

NOTE:  No picture of the baked peach halves, because….we ATE them!

Cut each peach in half (no need to peel) and remove stone.

Butter a baking dish and place peach halves, cut side up, side by side in the dish.

Put a dab of butter and a sprinkle of cinnamon on top of each peach half. If the peaches are not very sweet, add a sprinkle of sugar.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

If you’re really lucky, you’ll have some vanilla ice cream in the freezer so you can add a scoop of ice cream on top of each peach when you serve them.

This recipe can be easily adapted to the grill, if you happen to be cooking on the grill.  Wrap each peach half with the toppings in aluminum foil and put on top of grill. Cook until soft, but not falling apart.
