This quick, easy peach dessert is one of my favorites because of how simple it is to throw together. It’s six steps and can easily be doubled if feeding a bigger crowd.
Step 1: Place the top oven rack in the center position and preheat the oven to 350F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with a baking mat.
Step 2: Arrange the peach halves on the baking sheet and spread the balsamic vinegar over the surface with a pastry brush. Sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the peach halves.
Step 3: Drizzle two tablespoons of the maple syrup (leaving 1/2 tablespoon set aside) on top of the peach halves. Use the pastry brush to spread it out over the entire surface.
Step 4: Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the peaches are tender/warmed through.
Step 5: While the peaches are baking, pour the heavy cream into a medium mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. Add the 1/2 tablespoon of maple syrup into the heavy cream and beat until thoroughly combined.
Step 6: Remove the peaches from the oven and serve warm with a dollop of the maple whipped cream. Top with additional cinnamon, if desired.
