Question for Mom

Any suggestions on what to do with an excess of peaches? –Molly R.

How about turning them into a quick dessert?  Spiced Peaches take less than 10 minutes to make.

Spiced Peaches – serves 2-4 
2 large ripe but firm peaches 
1 tablespoon brown sugar 
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 
2 teaspoons butter  
Cook whole peaches in boiling water for 2 minutes.  Cut in half, remove the stone and pull off and discard the skin.  Put the peach halves in a broiling pan, cut side up.    
Place an oven rack 4 inches from the broiling unit and begin preheating the broiler to high. 
Combine the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl and mix thoroughly.  Fill each depression with the sugar mixture and then top with 1/2 teaspoon butter. 
Place the broiling pan under the broiler and broil for about 2 minutes, or until the butter has melted and the peaches are hot.  Serve immediately, 1 or 2 halves per person.
