Ingredients
  • 4 peaches , halved
  • 8 tsp butter
  • 4 tsp brown sugar
  • cinnamon to taste (I used about 4 teaspoons in total, ½ teaspoon on each peach half)
  • 8 scoops vanilla ice cream
  • For Caramel:
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cream
  • 1 tbsp sea salt or kosher salt
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°
  2. Cut peaches in half and remove the pits.
  3. Place 1 tsp of butter in the centre of each peach half, followed by ½ tsp of brown sugar and a sprinkle of cinnamon to taste.
  4. Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
  5. In a small pot, melt 2 tbsp of butter on medium heat.
  6. Add brown sugar and whisk continuously until melted. Do not overheat! Sugar burns very easily.
  7. Mix in the cream slowly, still whisking until completely mixed and the mixture is a light brown colour. Remove from heat and mix in the sea salt.
  8. Serve peaches with ice cream and caramel sauce!
Recipe Notes

If you want the caramel to be hot or warm, wait until the peaches have been baking for at least 15 minutes before starting the caramel!
