Brown Sugar, Butter and Cardamom Skillet Roasted Peaches E.A.T. #31

Ingredients? 4. Time? 15 minutes. Results? Ripe South Carolina Peaches Caramelized with Raw Sugar, Cardamom and Kerrygold Butter to make the easiest, most delicious, screaming Summer dessert ever! No joke….it is as easy-as-this.

Select firm, juicy ripe sweet peaches. No peeling necessary.

Arranged in an iron skillet cut side up with a dab of butter, a sprinkling of cardamom and crunchy raw sugar and that’s all.

Roasted at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes until sugar caramelizes and peaches begin to blister.  Turn on the broiler if you like them a bit burnt like I do. You can also do this on a grill if you prefer. Serve with a quick cold, sour cream-brown sugar sauce and more sugar for crunch. How very summer is that?

Brown Sugar, Butter and Cardamom Skillet Roasted Peaches

Ingredients:

  • 4 firm, ripe peaches, unpeeled, cut in half with pits removed
  • 3 tablespoons butter, room temp, Kerrygold is what I use
  • ground Cardamom powder, to taste
  • 1 cup raw sugar, divided
  • 1 cup sour cream or plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Directions:

  1. Turn oven to 400 degrees. Arrange peach halves, cut side up, in an iron skillet.
  2. Place a bit of butter in middle of each peach half. Sprinkle with cardamom to taste.
  3. Top with 1/2 cup raw sugar sprinkled over each peach half.
  4. Roast in hot oven for 10-12 minutes. If you like your peaches more blistered like I do, then turn broiler on for a minute or two.
  5. While peaches are roasting mix together sour cream or yogurt and 1/4 cup raw sugar and lemon juice until blended. Chill until ready to use.
  6. To serve place one or two peach halves on a plate and add a dollop of sweetened sour cream and another sprinkling of raw sugar. A wonderful, simple summer dessert.

Note: You can also place iron skillet on a pre-heated outdoor grill to roast. A scoop of ice cream is really good with theses peaches as well.
