I love peach season, partly because it means summer has arrived, but mostly because I just love peaches! My Sautéed Peaches recipe is just one of many delicious peach recipes I like to break out during the summer months here in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Although I generally whip up this recipe to make my Peaches and Cream Crêpes, these are equally amazing on vanilla ice cream, a slice of pound cake or smothered in some whipped cream.
These peaches are ridiculously easy to make and only require four ingredients total. You will need peaches, of course (these are best when ripe), butter (I use salted butter to enhance the flavor of the peaches), brown sugar and vanilla extract.
To make these Sautéed Peaches, begin by preheating a cast iron skillet over medium heat. When hot, melt the butter and whisk in the sugar; cooking until the mixture starts to bubble. Add in the peaches and sauté until they start to soften and their juice helps to produce a syrup in the pan; about 3 minutes.
When peaches are in-season, you MUST make these Sautéed Peaches! They will add incredible flavor to your vanilla ice cream, pound cake, dessert crêpes and more!
