Grilled Peach Brulee

Technically it's brûlée, but who has time to add all of those squiggles? And if you want to get really technical, a brulee is made using a blowtorch, so this is just grilled peaches topped with caramelized brown sugar. It's still awesome.

  • Peaches
  • Brown Sugar
  • Vanilla Ice Cream

  1. Cut peaches in half & remove stone.
  2. Add peaches, cut side down, to hot grill.  Close grill cover and wait.  Flip before the cut side becomes charred.  Cook time will depend on your grill's heat; you'll have to gauge this for yourself.  It shouldn't take long.
  3. Flip peach on grill so skin side is down.  Sprinkle brown sugar generously over cut side, then close grill.  Go get your bowls and ice cream.
  4. Once sugar is caramelized, move to bowl, cover with ice cream, and top with a light sprinkling of brown sugar.  You don't need more sweetness, but it's a tiny bit of extra work for a ton of presentation points.

This is one of those desserts that impresses far more than it deserves.  Very worth doing on a night where you've already got the grill hot.
