Pie is one of my favorite foods. Peach pie counts as a fruit serving right? While I still eat the traditional peach pie, ala mode, of course, I don't want to eat it every day or every week. Here is an easy to make dessert recipe for peach pie that is just as flavorful without having the labor or guilt of eating high calories and fat that goes along with traditional peach pie. What's also great about this recipe is that you can use a broiler or a grill, so you can make it all year long.
It involves the simplicity of fresh peaches combined with vanilla, brown sugar (or brown Sugar Twin) and Triple Sec liquor. Plus, serving it in a martini glass makes it very elegant too if you're entertaining.
I'm basing this easy to make recipe on two servings. You can just increase the ingredients to fit. Ingredients: Large peaches, not overly ripe - about the size of a baseball. Each peach will represent two servings. Vanilla (half a capful per half peach), brown sugar or brown Sugar Twin (my husband really dislikes artificial sweeteners, but he can't taste the difference with the Sugar Twin - I use the Sugar Twin), Triple Sec Liquor.
Cut the peaches in half, discard
Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the peach. ½-1 teaspoon is all that you need. Pour half a capful of the vanilla on top of the peach. Pour 1-2 teaspoons of the Triple Sec on top of the peach. You can do this ahead of dinner so that the flavors will marinate a little bit. If the liquid runs down the sides, that's great. These will go on the grill or under the broiler. Put the pit side down and pour the remainder of any liquid on the top of the peach. Grill or broil between two and three minutes per side until soft.
Serve pit side up with your favorite vanilla ice cream. You can even use light or sugar free ice cream if you wish. It tastes just like a peach pie or cobbler. The Triple Sec and brown sugarrecipes. cause a glaze that really brings out the flavor of the peach. Enjoy! I'm sure you'll want to keep this as one of your staple dessert the pit and put them on a dish pit side face up.
