Caramelized Peaches With Rum

I had a few end-of-the-season peaches to use, so for dessert I made a take on bananas foster. I cut the peaches into chunky slices, cooked them in a caramel-rum sauce, and served them over vanilla ice cream. The rum intensifies the buttery caramel. This decadent dessert is quite elegant, but it's so simple! Definitely try it.

Caramelized Peaches With Rum
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
3 peaches, peeled and cut into thick slices
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup light rum
Vanilla ice cream

1. Melt butter in skillet; stir in brown sugar. Cook until mixture is combined. Stir in peaches, allspice, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes. Turn off heat, and stir in rum. Turn heat back on, and cook, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Spoon peaches and caramel-rum sauce over vanilla ice cream.
