Wash, then cut the peaches, remove the pits and slice.
Add the peach slices to a bowl, sprinkle them with the sugar and gently toss to coat. Set aside for 5 minutes until the sugar dissolves.
Stir the vanilla into the cream (whip slightly if you’d like), then pour over the peaches.
You can eat them right away, but they taste even better if they sit in the fridge for a few hours for the peaches to infuse the vanilla cream.
Divide into bowls and serve
When choosing peaches for this dessert, make sure you choose ones that are at the perfect ripeness. This means they should give in to pressure slightly when poked with your finger. Peaches that are too ripe will get mushy and underripe peaches may be bitter.
Be careful when removing the pit from the center of the peach to make sure you do not damage the flesh. How to pit a peach is quite easy with the right steps.
It’s important to make sure the sugar dissolves fully before pouring the cream over to make sure the granule texture is not in the dessert.
