Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon-Sugar Butter – Juicy, sweet grilled summer peaches make a mouthwatering dessert with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream!

Prior to trying this absolutely peachy dessert (har), I wasn’t completely sold on the idea. But, my curiosity got the best of me, and I decided to make good use of Texas’ bounty of terrifically juicy, tender peaches.

First, in this amazing color bomb of a caprese salad. Then, a jug of this tipsy lemonade iced tea. And for dessert, the most unexpectedly incredible thing that took me thirty years to discover: these perfectly charred peaches with melted cinnamon-sugar butter and a scoop (or three) of vanilla ice cream. Plus, a sprig of something pretty and fresh – mint or basil.

Five minutes. Four ingredients. Three minutes to devour it – I guarantee it won’t take you any more!

First, find the best peaches you can get your paws on. If you can smell them in the store before you even hold it in your hand, you found your perfect peaches. They should be firm throughout, with no bruises or soft indentations.

When you are just ready to serve dessert, slice your fruit in half. Post-dinner, I find one half fits the bill for me. With the extra vanilla ice cream, it is surprisingly decadent and rich tasting.

Brush the peaches with a little oil (any will do – I usually use olive) and lay cut-side-down on a hot grill pan or outdoor grill. Give each half a gentle push down onto the pan for perfect grill marks. Then, just remove to plates and serve!

These juicy grilled peaches are outrageously good with a swirl of cinnamon-sugar butter and vanilla ice cream, or freshly whipped cream.
