Most Helpful

These grilled peaches are fabulous. I did omit the rosemary (we just do not like the flavor) and used a pinch of ground cinnamon (did not have the schnapps). I cooked exactly as directions indicated. I served this as a dessert after grilled steak, grilled parmesan potatoes, grilled corn on the cob, and grilled tomatoes. My husband did all the work! Since we love peaches, I will be making this again soon.
