Sweet Peach!

Posted on August 21, 2013. Filed under: Deserts | Tags: , , |

I completely forgot to post about the dessert I made the other day! Last Thursday, Calli wanted to have a cook out, and how could I say no to that? She made grilled chicken and salmon and a grape salad, and I made baked peaches with a bourbon maple cream sauce. Not to toot my own horn, but they were pretty fantastic. Everything is very easy to make and the peaches themselves are pretty healthy. Make sure you make this before the good peaches go away!

Baked peaches
(From The Kitchen is my Playground)

2-3 peaches, halved and pitted
Butter, divided into 1/2 teaspoons
2 tsp brown sugar

  1. Line the peaches, halves up in a baking pan. Put half a teaspoon of butter in the middle where the pits used to be, cover with brown sugar and cinnamon and bake in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes. Top with cool whip, or Bourbon Maple Cream sauce

Bourbon Maple Cream Sauce

1 pint bourbon (I used Jim beam, Maker’s Mark would be better)
3/4 cup maple syrup8 oz heavy cream

  1. Bring the bourbon and syrup to a boil and let reduce to about half, making sure to stir. Add the heavy cream once reduced. Taste to make sure it is sweet enough. Serve warm over peaches, or ice cream.
