Ingredients

1/4 c. brown sugar

1/4 c. butter, melted (reserve 1 Tbsp. for brushing grill plates)

2 Tbsp. peach liqueur or orange juice

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

4 ripe Freestone peaches, cut in half and pit removed

4 cinnamon sticks, for garnish​

Directions

On the stovetop, preheat a grill pan (that has an accompanying press) on medium high heat.

In a medium size bowl, add brown sugar, melted butter (reserve 1 Tbsp. of butter to brush on grill), peach liqueur (or orange juice) and cinnamon.  Stir until sugar dissolves.

Add peach halves and toss to coat. 

Using a silicone pastry brush, brush 1 Tbsp. of the reserved butter on both the grill pan and press. Place peach halves on grill, flesh side up, and cover with press.

Grill for 5 minutes.  Remove peaches from grill using nylon tongs or spatula.  Serve in individual bowls and garnish with cinnamon sticks.

Optional: Serve with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
