Broiled Peaches With Cookie-crumb Topping
2 Ripe peaches; (about 1 pound), peeled, pitted, and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
2 ts Fresh lemon juice
4 ts Firmly packed light brown sugar
1 tb Unsalted butter; cut into bits
2 Shortbread or butter cookies; crumbled (about 1/4 cup crumbs)
Heavy cream as an accompaniment
In a bowl toss together the peaches, the lemon juice, and 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar and in a buttered flameproof baking pan large enough to hold the peaches in one layer broil the mixture about 6 inches from a preheated broiler for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the peaches are tender. In a small bowl combine the remaining 1 teaspoon brown sugar, the butter, and the cookie crumbs and sprinkle the topping over the peaches. Broil the mixture for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the topping is pale golden. Divide the mixture between 2 dishes and serve it with the cream.
