- 1/2 ripe peach, white or yellow, stone removed
- 1 tablespoon vanilla sugar
Pat the cut side of the peach dry with a paper towel and place on a rimmed baking sheet (line with foil for easy clean up). Sprinkle the cut side of the peach with the sugar. Using a torch, caramelize the sugar until it forms a golden crust. Serve immediately.
Alternatively, heat the broiler. Assemble the peaches as above and broil until the sugar crust forms — about 3 minutes.
To make vanilla sugar, place a vanilla bean in a jar of sugar, and let sit at least overnight. This is a great thing to do once you’ve scraped the seeds from the bean for another recipe (like White Peach Vanilla Tarte Tatin).print this recipe
