Grilled Florida Peaches with Amaretti

Peaches remind me of summer. Fresh Florida peaches makes this recipe perfect for that ideal dessert. Recently, while at the Farmer's Market, I found some beauties and made this delicious dessert. The recipe comes from the Barefoot Contessa, Ina Garten.

Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa


  • 8 ripe peaches, cut in ½ and pitted

  •  1/4 cup vanilla sugar recipe follows (If you haven't made this or do not have on hand, just substitute regular sugar)

  •  1/4 cup good dark rum (recommended: Mount Gay)

  • 1/4 cup good almond liqueur (recommended: Amaretto Di Savonna)

  • 8 amaretti cookies, crumbled

  • Creme fraiche or vanilla ice cream to serve, optional
