Roasted Peaches


4 Peaches, cut in half, unpeeled, stones removed
1/4 cup Amaretto or Marsala
1-2 drops Vanilla extract
2 Tbl. Sugar, or to taste

Preheat the oven to 375? F.

Arrange the peaches in a shallow baking dish, cut side up. Mix the Amaretto with the vanilla and 1 Tablespoon of the sugar, and pour over the peaches, so that a little settles in the hollows.

Bake for 10 to 20 minutes or until soft (the time varies, depending on the size and ripeness of the fruit).

Sprinkle the tops with the remaining sugar and put under the broiler until caramelized.

The baking can be done in advance, but the last step must be carried out just before serving.

Serve hot.

Yield: 2 servings
