Peach Flambé

There's nothing worse than being short on time and in need of a dessert. This recipe is my go-to when I just want to add a little something extra to a bowl of vanilla ice cream or an old fashioned ice box cake.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 5 peaches, pitted and sliced
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar
  • 1 Cup Cointreau liqueur
  • 5 mint leaves, snipped into small pieces using kitchen shears, for garnish

Directions

Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and melt the butter. Add the peaches and cook until the peaches become soft, about 5 minutes. Add the brown sugar to the pan, stir, and cook for 5 minutes longer. Increase the heat to high and add the Cointreau (use caution when adding alcohol to a hot pan). Cook until the liqueur is reduced and the butter-sugar syrup has thickened, about 8 more minutes. Place the peaches into a serving bowl and garnish with the mint.

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
