Baked Peaches and...?

Ok so last night, mainly as an excuse to use my new (antique) CI Dutch Oven, I roased some peach halves in brown sugar, rum, vanilla and a touch of nutmeg... they were tasty with icecream but I have a bunch left! (about 1qt+ n syrup)

Would live an idea of a quick dessert I can make with them... I am NOT a baker so something easy and quick I could do after work... I do have self rising flour, milk and eggs on hand but not much else in the way of baking supplies....

FYI taste pretty good but could probably have used more sugar and less vanilla and rum

Buy a pound cake and serve it on top
Make a sort of crostini with toasted bread, cream or goat cheese, and the peaches on top
Pancakes with peaches on top, or crepes with peaches rolled up inside

HTH.

Bisquick, put the peaches back into the dutch oven, cover with bisquick and bake..

or better yet.
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup rolled oats
4 tablespoons cold butter (1/2 stick)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

In a bowl combine flour, sugar and oats.

Cut butter into 8 small pieces, and cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or two forks until mixture is crumbly. Stir in the chopped nuts. Butter a 9-inch square baking dish. Spread peaches in the bottom of baking dish then sprinkle with flour/oats mixture. Bake at 375 for 30 to 35 minutes (top is brown off).

If the peach halves are still intact, fill the halves with mascarpone & top with chopped walnuts -drizzle w chocolate sauce.

Serve with French Toast, waffles or pancakes.

Make a smoothie with vanilla or peach ice cream.

Since it's not too sweet, you could use as a topper for grilled fish.

Incorporate the grilled peaches into a salad - spinach, red onions, walnuts, etc.

Toss them in a food processor & use as a dipping sauce for won tons.

Use as a topper or side with rice pudding.

Chilled Peach soup.

Make a dough, place peaches in the middle, fold sides over for a rustic type of tart. Brush the folded over edges with egg and then sprinkle with coarse sugar. Bake.

It may be blasphemy on this forum to use frozen dough, but if you thaw Rhodes rolls in the microwave and knead two together you can roll them out, sprinkle them with butter and cinnamon, drop some peaches on there, clip the sides of the "tart" into strips and wrap the peaches with them. They are simple and not too bad.
