You know how you go to the grocery store to get one thing and leave with your arms full? I had one of those grocery trips today. I just couldn't resist the scent of locally grown peaches, so two of them ended up in my basket.
(Along with about a million other things.)
I searched for a peach dessert that I could throw together with minimal effort, and settled on baked peaches with a brown sugar & brandy glaze. Oh my, they were delicious. I only wish I had bought more peaches!

1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp brandy
Whipped cream, optional
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel peaches and cut into quarters. Remove pit and discard. Place peaches in an oven-safe glass baking dish. (I used a small Corningware dish.)
2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan. Add the brown sugar and brandy, and stir to combine. Drizzle over peaches.
3. Bake the peaches in the preheated oven until soft, about 30 minutes. Top with whipped cream, if desired.
