Summer Sundays

This week I'm joining The Tablescaper for Summer Sundays!

I wanted to share a recipe that combines two treats that always remind me of Summer. Grilled peaches served with vanilla ice cream. I made it last night and it was such a hit I thought you might enjoy it.

The recipe (I got it from More Magazine):
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 vanilla bean, seeds scraped
3 tablespoons light brown sugar
2 firm but ripe peaches, cut in half and pitted
Vanilla frozen yogurt (I used low carb ice cream)

1. Tear a 24 in long piece of aluminum foil and fold in half to double. Fold up 1/2 inch on each side, and pinch corners to get a raised edge. Place on grill set to med-low.
2. Melt butter. Add vanilla seeds and brown sugar, and stir to combine. Spread mixture onto cut side of peaches. Place peaches cut side down on foil.
3. Cook on first side 5 to 10 minutes, depending on ripeness of peaches. Cook on other side 2-3 minutes more. Pull skins off if desired- they should slip right off.
4. Serve each half with a scoop of ice cream. Enjoy!
Taste and see that the Lord is good.Psalm 34:8

You bring back such wonderful memories. I made grilled peaches last summer with a balsalmic dressing (really) and it was wonderful. Love the dish you have your peaches in!

Thank you for joining in "Summer Sundays"!

Oh my gosh Lisa...
I'm going to pick some peaches and visit my mother (she's allowed to use her stove/ in general) - and she'll be 100% for it if I have ice cream in tow!!!

Thank You!!! I think I hear the dinner bell....

Sounds wonderful! Now can I reveal my inexperience with vanilla beans...when you say scrape the seeds do you mean scrape them out and use them? I love ice cream with vanilla beans but haven't ever used them myself.
