Stuffed Peaches

Choose ripe, juicy peaches for this simple dessert. They are sure to make it shine -- whether you serve it mid-week or after Sunday dinner.
  • 4 ripe peaches or nectarines
  • 1/2 c. ricotta cheese (I use any that I haven't used to stuff shells or layer into lasagna!)
  • 1 T. light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground star anise or nutmeg

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Arrange them, cut side up, in a shallow baking dish.

Place the ricotta cheese in a small mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar and mix until thoroughly combined. Using a teaspoon, spoon equal amounts into the hollows of each of the peach halves. Sprinkle with the star anise.

Broil for 6-8 minutes or until the peaches are hot. Serve warm.
