I wait all year for summer peaches; the first bite, with sweet flesh and juice dripping down my chin as I eat one over sink. A food moment that signals the date on the calendar, and joy of the season.

I like to keep things low-effort in summer, while highlighting the peak ripeness of ingredients. Most are so fabulous on their own that they don’t need much zhuzhing in the kitchen.

Like ripe peaches, baked with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon until caramelization sets in and leads the way to warm, juicy fruit. Topped with cool and creamy vanilla ice cream and crunchy pistachios, it becomes the easiest, elevated peaches and cream that is ridiculously delicious.

How to Make Easy Baked Peaches:

  1. Cut your ripe peaches in half vertically, rotating knife from top of peach. Twist halves apart, then remove pit.
  2. Whisk together melted butter, brown sugar, and lemon juice.
  3. Place peaches cut side up in a baking pan and brush liberally with butter mixture. Flip peaches over and brush the skin side liberally.
  4. Place pan with skin side down peaches into the oven and bake for 12 minutes. Then flip peaches over, and pour remaining mixture over the top, brushing to coat.
  5. Bake for another 15-20 minutes, until peaches are soft and caramelized. Serve warm with ice cream.

Can you bake peaches with the skin on?

Yes! It’s one of several reasons why this recipe is so unfussy. You don’t have to peel the peaches! The skin softens with the heat of the oven and by the end of baking, they’ll be tender with no resistance.

Ways to Eat Roasted Peaches:

Once you’ve roasted your peaches, you can keep them in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, and eat many different ways. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Chopped and added to oatmeal as a delicious topping
  • Sliced and used in salads
  • Sliced and used on a grilled cheese
  • Chopped and swirled into yogurt and big cluster granola
  • Atop pound cake, with fresh whipped cream

To store baked peaches, let them fully cool and place in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to five days.

To reheat, warm in the microwave for 15 seconds. You can also freeze the peaches for up to 4 months.
