This little jewel comes from a jewel of a chef: Jacques Pipin. He uses the syrup from the peaches to make an unusual caramel cream sauce. You can use fresh peaches, but the canned ones make the best dessert.

How to Make Caramelized Peaches

Step-by-Step

  1. Drain peaches, reserving syrup and pour syrup into skillet. Cook over high heat til syrup is reduced and turns into a caramel, 9 to 10 minutes, shaking pan near end so caramel doesn’t burn around edges.
  2. Add peaches to caramel and stir in cram. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, to melt caramel and mix it with the cram. Boil for 1 to 2 minutes, then transfer to bowl and cool. Stir in cognac and lemon juice land add water if sauce is too thick. Cover and refrigerate til serving time.
  3. Just before serving, toast brioche or pound cake slices and put a slice on each of four dessert plates. Arrange 2 peach halves on top of each slice and coat with sauce. sprinkle peaches with pistachios. Serves 4

    You can substitute chopped toasted almonds if you don’t have pistachios
    This dessert tastes best when the caramelized peaches are well chilled. Make them early on the day you plan to serve it.
