It's peach season

I am not a huge fan of peaches...the fuzzy skin gets to me, but grilled that's another story. I found this recipe on my recipes, but I will admit I was insprired by a story in GQ of all places.

Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 fresh peaches
olive oil (or vegetable oil)
vanilla ice cream

In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon. Cut peaches along the seam all the way around and twist halves off the pit. Brush cut sides with oil. Cook, cut side down, on a hot grill until fruit has grill marks, 3 to 4 minutes. Brush tops with oil, turn over, and move to indirect heat. Sprinkle cut sides with cinnamon sugar. Cover grill and cook until sugar is melted and fruit is tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream (sprinkle on extra cinnamon sugar if you like).
