    Pets'R'us's Note:

    This is a great summer dessert! It needs a day in the fridge, so great to make in advance, even two to three days. This is a recipe from Delia Smith's cookery programme from 1993. She serves it with a mix of mascarpone, fromage frais and vanilla

      Oh my gosh, what a wonderful dessert. And it was so easy to prepare. I topped our baked peaches with vanilla bean ice cream (since I didn't have any fresh whipped cream on hand). But the vanilla sauce is so delicious and could easily stand alone without the help of whipped cream or ice cream. I let the peaches chill in the refrigerator for a day, and then let it reach room temperature before serving, and it was so good because the cinnamon and vanilla melded together so nicely. But I can imagine how much better it would have been, had I left it to chill for a day or two longer.

      These are Soooo Delicious the longer they set the better they taste. I did make then using my home canned peaches as no fresh peaches are avaible now. This worked very good as they were firm & canned with no sugar. I served them to guess toped with whipped cream, they said they were DELICIOUS. We had the left overs this evening for dessert, yummy. I will be making them again, thank you Pets for the recipe.
