Grilled Peaches with Ginger Cream

Ingredients:

About 6 to 8 medium-ripe peaches, peeled
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
Ginger Cream

Ginger Cream:
1 cup (8 oz) soft cream cheese
2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 tablespoon Frieda’s Crystallized Ginger, minced

Description:

It doesn’t take long to make this delectable grilled dessert—the peaches should just be hot and glazed when done.

Steps:

Cut the peaches into halves horizontally. Twist the halves in opposite directions to separate. Remove the pits. Cut each piece in half again. Thread peach wedges on 4 or 5 barbecue skewers (leave a little space between each piece for even cooking). Stir together the melted butter and brown sugar in a small bowl. Brush the peaches liberally with the butter mixture. Arrange the skewers on a lightly oiled grill or broiler pan.

Grill for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once and brushing several times with the butter mixture, until peaches are hot and glazed. (Or, broil 4 inches from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes.) Serve hot with Ginger Cream. Makes 4 or 5 servings

Beat together the cream cheese, brown sugar, orange juice and ginger in a small bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until well blended. Chill, covered, until serving time.
