Quick and easy Brown Sugar Cinnamon Baked Peaches take just 10 minutes to make. Top them with vanilla ice cream for an extra special summer dessert!
I couldn’t let this summer go by without sharing a new peach dessert with you, and this recipe for easy baked peaches is definitely worth talking about! So forget about your usual peach cobblers, crisps and cakes, because baked peaches topped with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon are much easier and just as delicious!
Well actually, don’t forget about the cobblers, cakes and crisps completely. If you love peaches and desserts made with peaches as much as we do, check these out:
But anyway, let’s get back to these sweet and juicy baked peaches!
I’ve been making these brown sugar cinnamon baked peaches for dessert every summer, just because they are super easy. Honestly, there’s nothing to this at at all. In fact, I even make them on a foil-lined cookie sheet so that I won’t have to wash any dishes. How’s that for a lazy?!
The key is to use peaches that are ripe but not over ripe. If the peaches are too hard, you’ll be fighting to remove the pit. If they’re too soft, you’ll end up with a bunch of watery, mushy peaches — been there, done that, not fun!
So when you channel your inner Goldilocks and find peaches that are not too soft and not too hard but just right, the rest is easy. Just
- Pit the peaches
- Fill them with goodness
We like to top the peaches with a heaping scoop of vanilla ice cream, but this is optional. Okay, who am I kidding — go for it!
How to Make Brown Sugar Cinnamon Baked Peaches
Fresh peaches baked with brown sugar and cinnamon and topped with vanilla ice cream are perfect for a quick and easy summer dessert!
- 3 peaches washed, halved and pitted
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 6 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Place peaches, cut side up, on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet
Cut butter into small pieces, and place 1 piece into center of each peach
Top each peach with 1 teaspoon brown sugar, and sprinkle cinnamon evenly over all peaches
Bake for 10 minutes or until peaches are warm throughout and slightly soft
Top each with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired, and enjoy!
I serve one half of a peach per person. Topped with ice cream, it's enough for one person.
My family has been loving these brown sugar cinnamon baked peaches so much that we’ve made them several times already this summer. I hope you love them as much as we do!
