Sweet broiled peaches.

I’m currently exploring recipes for desserts with fewer than five ingredients for an upcoming post on SparkPeople.com. (Tough assignment, no?) With some fresh, local fruit on hand in the fridge, I came up with this super-simple recipe for broiled peaches. For a lovely summer dessert, top the peach halves with vanilla ice cream, or whipped cream, or honey-sweetened ricotta. I’ve enjoyed the fruit with a dollop of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt for a healthy afternoon snack.

sweet broiled peaches

per serving:
1 fully ripe peach, peeled and halved
1 tsp. Turbinado (raw) sugar, or substitute brown sugar
dash of almond extract

Preheat broiler. Place peach halves in a baking dish; sprinkle with almond extract and sugar. Broil 5 minutes, until sugar is caramelized like crème brûlée. Remove from oven and serve topped with ice cream, yogurt, sweetened whipped cream or whatever you like.
