Peaches and Cream Amaretto

Fresh peaches are delicious. I got about 10 lbs today from Hubers. A friend was coming for dinner, so I created a dessert! It was inspired by Bananas Foster (which is an amazing dessert), but I actually like this one better, I think. The different textures were great and the flavors were incredible!
2/3 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup amaretto (almond liqueur)
2 T slivered almonds
2 fresh peaches, sliced
1 tsp cinnamon
Vanilla frozen yogurt
Melt butter over med-high heat. Once melted, add in brown sugar. Add cinnamon, almonds, and peaches. After cooking some (3-4 minutes), add in amaretto. Let concentrate over medium heat.

For plating: spoon some of the syrup on bottom of bowl. Then a scoop of ice cream. The cover with peaches and more syrup. Top with almonds.

Incredible! :) Lick the plate good!
