- 6 Ripe peaches
- 4 1/2 Tablespoon light brown sugar
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper
- Whipped cream, for serving
Prepare a hot grill.
Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, vanilla, and cayenne. Place the peach halves in a baking dish cut side up and spoon the sugar mixture over the peaches. Allow to sit for 20 minutes or until the sugar dissolves.
Place the peaches on the grill skin side down and cook for about 3 minutes or until they develop some char and the sugar is slightly set. Turn over and grill for 1 minute, then quarter turn them to develop a nice diamond shaped grill mark. Remove, place on serving plates, and serve with a dollop of whipped cream.
