#CookClub recipe No. 22: Grilled Peaches with Honey Cream

Don't waste any time. Go out and get peaches while they are at their summer peak to make Grilled Peaches with Honey Cream, #CookClub recipe no. 22.

You may never serve another dessert the entire summer. It's that good.

Also, don't worry if you don't have a grill pan or outdoor grill. The peaches can be roasted in the oven, which is how I tested this recipe. It'll take a bit longer than the grill, but it's worth every minute.

The grilled peaches, with a quick coating of melted butter, honey and cinnamon, taste like the insides of a peach pie. This is the perfect dessert recipe for these gluten-free days.

Another way to serve the peaches is to forego the honey cream, and pair them with vanilla ice cream.

Look for soft, ripe peaches, especially if you are grilling. Oven-roasting will soften and sweeten the peaches a bit. They will still hold their shape but need some assertive fork-work to get through. On the grill, under-ripe peaches will need much more time than the recipe calls for to soften and might burn before this happens.

I hope you'll give this recipe a try. It's got my vote for the #CookClub hall of fame.
