Brandied Peaches

Peach halves (six peach halves)

one knob of butter per peach half

2/3 cup, plus one tbsp light brown sugar

1/3 cup of brandy

One tsp of cinnamon

Good quality vanilla ice cream

 

Pre-heat the oven to 350f. Place the peach halves in a dish and retain the syrup (you’ll want about 1/4 cup worth). Top each peach half with a knob of butter. Combine the syrup, brandy, brown sugar (minus the extra tbsp), and half the cinnamon and pour over the peaches into the dish. Sprinkle the remaining cinnamon over the top.

 

Bake for 25 mins, basting occasionally. once the peaches are done, turn on the grill (broiler), sprinkle the peaches with the extra brown sugar and move them up to the top shelf for five minutes. This gives them an extra glazed, caramel-y cheek.

 

To serve, add two peaches per person to a big dollop of ice cream and drizzle with a generous serving of syrup. The hot peaches and sauce melt the ice cream, creating a syrupy vanilla soup. absolutely delicious I tells ya. Once the peaches are gobbled up, you should have some extra sauce left over for second helpings.
