How to Make Brown Sugar Cinnamon Peaches
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!
First, wash and cut the peaches in half. Then, carefully remove the pits, and scoop out the center using a melon baller or a spoon.
Next, place the peaches on a baking sheet. Fill the centers with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon, and pop them into the oven.
The peaches are ready when they're soft and the filling is warm and melted. This takes about 10 minutes or so.
As a bonus, your home will smell absolutely amazing! You can eat the peaches now if you want.
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!
Ice cream makes everything better. Right?
This may be the easiest peach dessert ever, but don't forget about the cobblers, cakes and crisps completely. If you love easy peach desserts as much as we do, check these out:
