Need a delicious, last-minute dessert for your summer cookout? These grilled peaches a la mode can be thrown together while the grills still hot. This super-simple dessert is only five ingredients and compliments any summer meal. Starting with the freshest peaches will give you a soft, juicy, and flavorful dessert every time. After about 15 minutes on the grill, the cinnamon-sugar topping caramelizes and beautiful, deep-brown grill marks appear on the fruit.  These grilled peaches have a rich and smoky-sweet flavor that you’ll crave all summer long. 

How to Make It

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut peaches along the seam all the way around and twist halves off the pit. Brush cut sides with grapeseed oil or vegetable oil. Cook, cut side down, on a hot grill until fruit has grill marks, 3 to 4 minutes. Brush tops with oil, turn over, and move to indirect heat. Sprinkle cut sides with cinnamon sugar. Cover grill and cook until sugar is melted and fruit is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream (sprinkle on extra cinnamon sugar if you like).

My husband and I loved this recipe. I would like to try it with nectarines next time. The peach skins were a bit thick and hard to cut with our ice cream spoons. It was very easy to cook. I added a bit more brown sugar and freshly grated cinnamon on top of our icecream!

This was delicious and easy; we've also grilled pineapple spears this way - amazing! Sometimes I use honey in place of the brown sugar. Even without the ice cream it's wonderful as a side dish...

These were excellent. Followed the cooking times exactly (4 min & 10 min) and they were perfect. Had great peaches to work with which is the biggest key.
