  • Cooking Time: 6 minutes
  • Servings: 8
  • Preparation Time: 20 minutes
  • Peaches
  • - 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • - 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • - 2 tablespoons light brown sugar packed
  • - Tiny pinch fine sea salt
  • - 4 large ripe peaches halved and pitted
  • - Canola or vegetable oil
  • - Mint leaves for garnish
  • Graham Cracker Topping
  • - 3 sheets graham crackers crushed
  • - 1/4 cup light brown sugar packed
  • - 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • - 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • - 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • - 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • - Small pinch fine sea salt
  • - Vanilla bean ice cream for serving
  1. 1. CINNAMON-SUGAR-BUTTER MIXTURE: In a small bowl, add the butter and melt. In another small bowl, stir together the cinnamon, light brown sugar, and salt. Stir until combined, and set aside.
  2. 2. GRILL PEACHES: Meanwhile, preheat a grill or grill pan to medium-high heat (about 400-450 degrees F.) Generously oil the grill (I drench a roll-up paper towel in vegetable oil and, holding it with tongs, rub it over the grill grates. Don't skip this step.). (Grill pan: brush 1 tablespoon oil over the pan) Halve the peaches and remove the pits. Lightly brush the cut sides and the skins with oil. Grill peaches until tender and lightly charred, but still slightly firm (you don't want them overly soft/mushy), about 6-10 minutes total (Note 1), flipping halfway through. Top each with a few brushes of the melted butter and then sprinkle on the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
  3. 3. GRAHAM CRACKER CRUMBLE: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray an 8x8-inch pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper and set aside. Crush the graham crackers into crumbs (using a blender or food processor, or crush in a bag using a rolling pin); add to a bowl. Add the brown sugar, white sugar, melted butter, cinnamon, salt, and vanilla to the bowl. Stir until combined. Pour mixture into the prepared pan and spread evenly into one layer. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool.
  4. 4. ASSEMBLE: Place grilled and sugared peach halves on plates and top each slice with a large scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Add the crumble on top and enjoy immediately. Garnish if desired with fresh mint leaves.
  5. Note 1: The total cooking time will vary based on the size of peaches, actual ripeness of peaches, the actual temperature of grill and type of grill, etc. Watch carefully and remove once the peaches are easily pierced with a sharp paring knife
