This is definitely one of my all-time favorite desserts. I have no clue how healthy it is, but fruit is the main ingredient so how bad could it be?! One of the most important things you can do for this recipe is to make sure your peaches are perfectly ripe! But since it's peach season that should be easy!
Baked Spiced Peaches
3 ripe peaches cut in half
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 slice (per peach) of butter (about 1 teaspoon)
vanilla ice cream
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
Lightly grease an 8x8 baking dish. Place peach halves skin down onto the dish. Slice a thin piece of butter and place it on top of each peach. About 1 teaspoon per peach. In a separate bowl combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Once combined add about a tablespoon of it onto each peach. I made sure to sprinkle it all over so that the top was covered. Place it in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Make sure the butter is melted and the peaches are pretty soft. Mine took exactly 12 minutes. Take them out of the oven and with a spoon lightly scoop out some of the spicy juices in the middle and set a side for a minute while you place a scoop of your favorite vanilla bean ice cream on top of the peach. (My personal favorite is the Private Selection brand crushed vanilla bean that can be found at Smith's and Fred Meyer. Finally take the spoonful of yummy juice/sauce and pour it over the top of your icecream and prepare to enter peach heaven!
