Vanilla-Roasted Peaches w/ Raspberries

Updated on June 3, 2008

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!

      Not many peaches around at this moment and if they appear in thje greengrocers they came out of deep freeze.

      Still I have saved and will make when i can buy some beautiful peaches. Thanks for the thought.
