During the height of summer, grilled peaches make an ideal treat. To ensure your fruit holds its shape on the grill, choose peaches that are ripe but firm. Prepare your raspberry sauce in advance: When dessert time rolls around, just grill your fruit and scoop your ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter melted
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 2 peaches peeled and pitted
  • 2 cups premium vanilla ice cream
  • 1/3 cup raspberries
  • 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds
Raspberry Sundae Sauce:
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Method

Raspberry Sundae Sauce: In blender, puree raspberries, sugar, lemon juice and 1 tbsp water. Strain through sieve into saucepan, pressing with spoon and scraping bottom of sieve to extract pulp. Discard seeds. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until warmed through, about 2 minutes.

Whisk cornstarch with 1 tbsp water; stir into raspberry mixture. Bring to boil, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute. Transfer to bowl; cover and refrigerate to cool completely, about 40 minutes. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 week.)

Meanwhile, in bowl, mix butter with brown sugar. Cut each peach into six wedges. Brush wedges with half of the butter mixture.

Place wedges on greased grill over medium heat. Grill, brushing and turning, just until tender, about 3 minutes. Brush with remaining butter mixture. Transfer to plate; let cool slightly, about 10 minutes. Serve with ice cream, raspberry sauce, raspberries and almonds.
