Pan Seared Peaches

Does it get any better than fresh summer peaches?

Yes, it does, believe it or not. 

Imagine those delicious peaches simmered in butter, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and sugar. 

Just thinking about that makes me drool almost as much as this does:

Back to the topic at hand, these peaches. 

Here's the damage from these bad boys:

And your ingredients
I left out the vanilla extract in the picture because that was a last minute addition, but SOOOO neccessary, so don't forget it!!

Here's what you do!

Optional: Peel your peach. I don't like feeling like I'm eating a mustache so I peel mine.
Not optional: pit your peach. 
Slice your peaches. *See note at bottom! You can either halve them or do lots of little slices.
Put the butter and vanilla extract in a pan, set it on medium high heat and let the butter melt.
Toss in those peaches!
Sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar. 
Let them simmer in all that goodness and then pour it on a plate.

They'll look like this:
And taste like this:

*Note:This recipe is called pan seared peaches because originally I just halved the peaches and placed them face down in the pan and let them get seared. They looked like this:
See the golden goodness on top? I wanted that all over the peaches so I sliced them and got that goodness on both sides of all my slices. Yummmmm.

  1. These sounded so good last week, that I made them that night for my kids' snack. I have had to make them almost every night since for them. They LOVE them (and so do I)! Thank you for sharing the recipe. YUM!
