Super easy! I used 4 fresh peaches instead of canned and added a tiny bit of freshly grated nutmeg to the mixture. Next time I think I'll add a bit more cinnamon. I baked at 450 for 10-15 minutes. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

This was ok. I used walnuts instead of pecans and the brown sugar seemed to harden a little like peanut brittle. I think I cooked it a couple of minutes too long. Read More

My friends and family loved this! We've tried it several different ways--with both fresh & canned peaches, and we all agree that it's actually best with canned peaches (plus, way easier to make!) I usually add in other fruits before heating it up...blueberries seem to be everyone's favorite, but red raspberries have worked well, too! Best with ice cream, in my opinion. Read More

Quick. Easy. Great Tasting. I tossed the peaches with a little honey and vanilla extract before sprinkling and broiling them. Read More

I really love this recipe. It is simple and quick for the times I don't have a lot of time to make dessert. And it is a great sweet treat for a grumpy sweet toothed husband when he says that there is nothing sweet to eat in the house.:) Read More

Easy fast and delicious! I used up some fresh peaches I had in the fridge and crushed walnuts because that's what I had in the house. To give it a little sauce I melted 1 Tbs of butter and poured it over the peaches and nuts. I also stirred the everything up a little to coat the peaches before I put it into the oven. Read More

Easiest dessert I ever made! Very good. I was searching for something to do with a jar of sliced peaches I had opened. I also put 1/4 cup raisins in a couple of tablespoons of water heated them in microwave for 30 seconds and added to the peaches before I sprinkled on the sugar mixture. I will be making this again.

There was something about this that I just didn't care for. Maybe the canned peaches? I doubt I ever make this again. Read More
