The Dessert Trial: Baked Peaches

Hello everyone,

I apologize for not posting for a couple months! I have been… well, enjoying my summer, and I hope you are too! Summer is what inspired today’s post. I’m sure you’ve smelled the amazing fragrance of peaches and nectarines while in the fruit section of the grocery store. I must say, peaches are one of the yummiest smelling fruits!

Anyway, if you’re anything like me you always have a sweet tooth. So today’s blog post consist of the collaboration of two of my faves; peaches and sweets. Here’s the best part, it’s not that bad for you! It also requires very minimal ingredients and is super quick to make. I hope you enjoy the recipe I tried off of Pinterest as much as I did.

  • Peaches (yellow or white based on your preference)
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cinnamon
  • Unsalted Butter
  • *Optional* Vanilla Bean ice cream (Because what’s dessert without ice cream, am I right?)

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and wash peaches.

Step 2: Cut peaches in half and remove pits. (I got a spoon and carved a little more out of the area where the pit was so the butter wouldn’t melt all over the place.) Put peach halves in a baking dish skin down.

Step 3: Scoop in 1 tablespoon of butter into each of the halves, follow by sprinkling brown sugar and cinnamon.

Step 4: Put those babies in the oven for 30 minutes on 375 degrees.

Step 5: Take them out and let them cool for about 10 minutes. (or just throw one in a bowl with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream like I did and enjoy 🙂 )

The Verdict:

I definitely enjoyed this recipe and will probably use it again many more times this Summer. I did try both yellow and white peaches and I liked them for different reasons. Yellow peaches are a lot sweeter but they were a little gooey. The white peaches were a little more sturdier and had a subtle sweetness that I really enjoyed. However, I feel like I needed a crunch factor. Next time I may add granola to the tops to give me that extra dimension!
