A few days ago, my husband came in with a huge box of peaches and a huge box of apples that he bought from a friend who’s church was selling them as a fundraiser. We have been very busy putting up that fruit. We have frozen, dehydrated, cooked, and eaten most of it. But today, there were a few peaches left over; and I wanted to make a quick easy dessert that wouldn’t completely send my diet out the window and my husband’s blood sugar out the roof. I found this nice little recipe on Peach Depot for baked peaches that fit the bill perfectly. They also suggest adding blueberries on top of the peaches. Made me wish I had some blueberries.
Solar Baked peaches
2 fresh peaches
2 tsp. butter, divided
2- 3 tsp. brown sugar, divided
sprinkling of cinnamon
whipped cream, yogurt, or whipped dessert topping, optional
Pre-heat the solar oven while preparing the ingredients.
Rinse peaches to wash, halve the peaches, and remove the pits. Place the peaches, peel side down in a baking dish.
Place about 1/2 tsp. butter in the hollow of each peach and on top of each dab of butter sprinkle about 1 1/2 tsp. brown sugar.
Bake peaches uncovered in the solar oven for about 1 hour or until the peaches are tender.
This is a quick cooking dish. Be careful not to overcook the peaches.
Serve warm with a dollop of whipped cream, yogurt, or whipped dessert topping (optional). I served mine warm with vanilla ice cream. OHHHHH! SO GOOD! (Opps!! Forgot to get a picture of the peaches with the ice cream)
