Inside Out Peach Pie (Without the Crust)

I like peach pie. But I always find myself devouring the inside and then passing the crust of to FoodieDaddy. So, when I threw some tart peaches on the grill I was thrilled to discover that not only did the grill sweeten the peaches as they caramelized, but it tasted just like a peach pie. Sprinkled with a bit of sugar and ground cinnamon or nutmeg and topped with ice cream, it is a perfect (and phenomenally easy) summertime dessert. Alternatively, you can also grill an avocado. Then chop up the peaches and avocado and mix them with chopped tomatoes, onions, garlic and cilantro for a twist on savory salsa.

Grilled Peaches

As many peaches as you can eat, washed, cut in half and pitted (but not peeled)
Melted butter

Heat grill on high. Brush cut side of peaches lightly with butter. Places peaches cut side down. Grill for about 5 minutes on high. Rotate about 90 degrees for cool looking grill marks. Grill another 5 minutes. Flip over and grill for another 5 minutes if you want them to be really soft and tender. Take off heat and (optional) sprinkle with sugar and spices. Eat warm with ice cream or chilled for breakfast.
