Peaches – Make sure you get ripe peaches, as they are sweet and taste best when used in the desserts.
Sugar – You can use either normal sugar or even brown sugar to sprinkle on the Peaches.
Cinnamon Powder – This does all the magic! The beautiful taste and aroma of cinnamon powder on the soft and tender peaches are just heavenly.
Butter – A small cube of butter is added on the top so that it melts and caramelizes the sugar well.
Step By Step Recipe
Pre heat the oven to 375 Degrees F. Slice the peaches in half and remove the pit. No need to peel the skin.
Arrange the halves on a baking tray. I have used 3 peaches here but you can half or double the recipe easily.
Keep a small piece of butter over each half.

Sprinkle this mixture over the peaches. If using alcohol like bourbon, rum or brandy, pour a tsp of it over each peach half at this stage.

To reheat, place the refrigerated peaches in a bowl or a plate and microwave it for about 30 seconds. If reheating in the oven, then place them in a baking sheet and heat at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes.
