Caramelized Peaches & Cream

Divine and dazzling are only two ways to describe this down-home Southern delight. A satisfying finale to any holiday feast.


Makes 8 servings


2 pounds sliced peeled unsweetened peaches or thawed and well-drained frozen peaches
2 tablespoons bourbon
3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
8 slices (1-1/2 ounces each) angel food cake


  1. Toss peaches with bourbon in shallow ovenproof 1-1/2-quart casserole or 11X7-inch glass baking dish. Press down into even layer.
  2. Combine sour cream, cinnamon and nutmeg in small bowl; mix well. Spoon mixture evenly over peaches. (May be covered and refrigerated up to 2 hours before cooking time.)
  3. Preheat broiler. Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over sour cream mixture to cover. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat, 3 to 5 minutes or until brown sugar is melted and bubbly. (Watch closely after 3 minutes so that sugar does not burn.)
  4. Spoon immediately over angel food cake.
