Caramelized Peaches over Vanilla Ice Cream

Peaches are bountiful right now and cheap.  Since I had one left over I decided that it needed to be caramelized in brown sugar and poured over vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients: 1 large firm peach, 3 large tablespoons of brown sugar, pat of butter, dash of cinnamon, teaspoon of vanilla extract & 2 big scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Slice up the fruit and remove the skin.

 Place 3 large tablespoons of brown sugar in a non stick pan.  Add a pat of butter and sprinkle on a little cinnamon.  Turn the burner to medium and let the sugar and butter liquefy before stirring.  Add in the vanilla extract and then the peaches.

Let the peaches simmer in the brown sugar sauce until nice and caramelized.  This should take about 5 minutes.  You want to make sure the peaches are nice and tender.  Divide sauce and fruit between 2 big bowls of ice cream.
