Vanilla-Roasted Peaches w/ Raspberries

Wonderful summertime dessert

I use all organic ingredients (not necessary tho )

2 tblsp. unsalted butter, melted

2 tblsp. fresh lemon juice

2 tblsp. sugar

1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise and scraped, or 1 teas. pure vanilla extract

4 firm, ripe peaches ( 1-11/2 lbs. total).

1 pint vanilla ice cream

1 package (5-6 ozs. raspberries

Directions: serves 4 (prep time 10 min. total 35 min.)

1. Preheat oven to 400 F. In a large, shallow baking dish, combine butter,lemon juice, sugar and vanilla bean (seeds and pod). Add peaches, and turn to coat with butter mixture, arrange, cut side down, in a single layer.

2. Roast until peaches are tender and cooking liquid is syrupy, 15 - 25 min., brushing with cooking liquid halfway through. Serve peaches (warm or at room temp.) with ice cream and raspberries; drizzle with cooking liquid.

hint: if the liquid in the bottom of the baking dish is too thick to drizzle, simply whisk in 1 - tblsp. warm water. Enjoy :o)

I love this recipe and I agree with you about using unsalted butter and organic fresh peaches. I always have to take the skin off peaches because the fuzzy texture makes my tongue feel ticklish. For some reason I could never eat peaches with the skins on. Thanks for the good hub!
