Easy Baked Peaches
Summer means peach season! I like smelling peaches so much that I always end up buying too many, and need to find new ways to eat them. Baked peaches are especially tasty, and a dessert where you can still feel virtuous for being so healthy.
These baked peaches are as simple as can be. Find a juicy peach, slather it in good spices and butter, and then caramelize to sweet perfection. (Trust me, the slathering is important.) I served my peaches with honey on top, but these would be delicious with whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or even a tart cherry jam. Enjoy!
4 tablespoons butter
4 teaspoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
Honey to taste
First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Next, pit the peaches and cut the peaches in half. Arrange the peach halves in a baking dish. Fill the dip in the middle of each peach with butter, and top with brown sugar.
Sprinkle the peaches with cinnamon, and bake until golden and soft (about 7-10 minutes, depending on how ripe the peaches are). Drizzle with honey, and serve warm.
