Grilled Peaches

One of my favorite summer desserts is not just ice cream, or cupcakes, or pies. Its a simple, fresh peach. Grilled. Its a super easy dessert that requires only 2 ingredients. Fresh peaches and sugar. I've waited all year long to finally be able to grill fresh, sweet peaches. And summer is the only time you get to have peaches at its prime. When selecting your peach to grill, you need to make sure they're slightly soft and over-riped to achieve optimum sweetness. Serve this with your favorite ice cream, but it goes best with vanilla ice cream. The warm peach goes so well with the cold ice cream. Grilled peaches with a side of ice cream is the quintessential summer dessert.

1) Cut peaches in half and remove the pit. Sprinkle 1-2 tablespoons of sugar on each half of the peach. Place peaches on a hot grill, cut-side up. Grill for about 5 minutes.

2) Carefully flip the peaches over to cook the sugar side. Grill for another 5 minutes, or until you get nice grill marks on your peaches. Serve immediately with ice cream.
