Warm Peaches With Whipped Cream

Recipe Ingredients:
6 ripe yellow peaches
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
¾ cup sugar
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Cut each peach in half, then cut each half into 4 slices.

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, sprinkle the sugar over the butter, and stir until dissolved, about 1 minute. Add the peaches, increase the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring frequently, until the peaches are softened and coated with a thin sauce, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand a few minutes.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, beat the cream and vanilla until soft peaks form. Spoon the peaches and sauce into bowls and serve with a dollop of whipped cream. (Start to finish 15 minutes). Makes 4 servings.
