Peaches are sweet, soft fruits that come in several varieties and make a tasty treat all on their own or added to different dishes. Peaches that are baked in the oven become soft, and their sweetness is accentuated. Baked peaches make a good base for desserts. Choose peaches that are just ripe or slightly firm for baking so that they retain their shape while they are in the oven.

Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Slice a peach in half by cutting into it until your knife reaches the pit and rotating the peach around the knife. Twist and pull the two halves apart and pull the pit out with your fingers.

Step 3

Set the peach halves in a small baking dish with the flesh side facing up. Add ingredients, such as a sprinkle of brown sugar, berries, orange zest or orange juice, for added flavor.

Step 4

Slide the dish into the oven and bake the peaches for 20 minutes, or until they have softened.

Step 5

Remove the peaches from the oven and serve them with ice cream, or drizzle them with heavy cream.
