Rumble Reader Recipe: Baked Peaches

I spent the first 20 something years of my life not liking or eating peaches. Crazy, I know. But I am now making up for it with a vengeance. I love fresh peaches. Every summer I look forward to the moment we can get fresh peaches from the farmers market or a roadside stand. Peaches are delicious almost any way you prepare them but my personal favorite is a good peach dessert. I devour my mother-in-law's peach desserts including peach crisp, peach cobbler, peach crumble, peach roll and more. When I want the joy of a peach dessert without much effort, my go to is baked peaches. They’re certain to be a crowd pleaser and will smell heavenly. Top with vanilla ice cream for extra joy!

Several ripe peaches, peel and sliced
