"Broiled Peaches nÕ Cookie-Crumb Topping"

Style:   American
Serves:   2


  • 2 ripe peaches (about 1 pound), peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  • 4 teaspoons firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, cut into bits
  • 2 shortbread or butter cookies, crumbled (about 1/4 cup crumbs)
  • heavy cream as an accompaniment


In a bowl toss together the peaches, the lemon juice, and 1 tbs of the brown sugar and in a buttered flameproof baking pan large enough to hold the peaches in one layer broil the mixture about 6 inches from a preheated broiler for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the peaches are tender. In a small bowl combine the remaining 1 tsp brown sugar, the butter, and the cookie crumbs and sprinkle the topping over the peaches. Broil the mixture for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the topping is pale golden. Divide the mixture between 2 dishes and serve it with the cream.
