Peaches are still plentiful, at least around these parts. So grab a couple and make this yummy and versatile dessert! I pretty much guarantee you will love it. That is, unless you hate fruit, or peaches, or sugar, or vanilla....if you do, then you probably won't like this much at all.... But if you like those things, then you will love it! :)
Slice your peaches into eighths or so, and distribute around shallow baking dish. Pour 1/4 cup water over them, then sprinkle about 1/4 c. of sugar on them and drizzle a splash of vanilla. Then bake in a 400 degree oven until the peaches are tender or about 13 minutes. (If you'd like them fall apart bake longer, if you'd like them more firm bake them less.)
This is them right out of the oven, see all that juicy vanilla-ee goodness in the bottom? Yum. You can eat them by themselves OR...
put them in a bowl and top with ice cream! Yum-O! :)
