No Recipe Zone – Baked Peaches

Well, peach season is coming to an end.  To mark it’s passing, I bought a bushels worth of some of the last crop from a local farmer, and this week I have been busy canning some for future use, making peach baby food cubes, & oodles of peach preserves…and of course, eating them fresh!  I also made some Peaches & Cream Cake, which I shared the recipe for back in the beginning of August.  After all of this, we were down to just a couple of peaches left.  So, after dinner, I prepared this super easy dessert for the kiddos & myself.  When I was a little girl, my MawMaw would make this for me.  It’s such a simple thing to do, & it tastes so so good!

You can use as many or as little peaches as you wish.  I like to blanch mine first to easily remove the skins as my grandmother used to do…but you don’t have to if you prefer the skins on.  

Cut your peaches in half, & remove the pit.  Place them cut side up in a baking dish & stuff the middles with brown sugar.

Sprinkle on a little cinnamon.

Dollop on a slice of butter on each peach.

Bake, uncovered, at 375 for 15 minutes.

Serve in a bowl, making sure you drizzle all that yummyness at the bottom of your pan on top.  Top with a scoop of ice cream.  I use butter pecan as that’s what MawMaw always used.  MmmmMmm – so good!
