    Sooooo yummy! Served with ice cream and caramel sauce. Delicious and will definitely make again. I think next time some roasted pecans or some butter pecan ice cream would go perfectly!

    These were very good! I used homemade Vanilla Sugar that I keep in the pantry and made the Whipped Cream from scratch. DH ate his first while I was taking pictures ;) and thought it needed a little texture. We started talking about a few nuts or oatmeal or something when he said Graham Cracker crumbs. Just happen to have some so I ran to the pantry and gave mine a little sprinkling. That did the trick! Will do again. Thanks!

    Make sure you have really ripe peaches, and to be honest they didn't ought to have much firmness to them at all. The cream was a disappointment. And don't try using carb-free sugar as a substitute if you're cooking for a diabetic - it doesn't caramelise well at all!

    I mixed the sugar and spices in a bowl and dipped the cut side of peaches in it. Turned them cut side up on a plate and let them sit a few minutes. Then cooked them as per recipe. I served them just with a little vanilla ice cream and was quickly wishing I'd made more than a 1/2 peach per person. We all just loved them. Big KEEPER. And I will try the whipped cream & caramel when I have it on hand. Thanks.

    I served these on butter pound cake with a scoop of butter pecan ice cream. Everything else the same. Yummy!
