ChandraThis is a family favorite dessert in our household – it doesn’t sit around too long without getting eaten up!

My favorite way to prepare this is to use fresh or home-canned peaches, but you can use store bought as well. It is best served warm with vanilla ice cream. Enjoy!

2 c fresh peaches (or you can use canned)

1 3/4 c sugar
