Amaretto Peaches

This is so good with those cheap peaches in the grocery store right now.
These really taste like peach candy to me. I think it's enough "marinade" to cover more like 6 peaches. I served these over ice cream with a little sauce drizzled on top and sprinkled with french vanilla granola. YUM!!
Marinated Peaches
Serves 4

Marinated peaches:
¼ cup firmly packed light brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 T Amaretto
1 T Peach Schnapps
4 large ripe peaches (about 1 ½ lb) seeded, peeled, and sliced
lemon juice or Fruit fresh (optional)—if making ahead, use it so the peaches will not turn brown

1. Combine peach slices, sugars, Amaretto, and Peach Schnapps in a bowl. Stir gently to combine. Set aside for 10 minutes for juices to develop. If peaches will stand longer than 30 minutes, it is best to sprinkle with fruit fresh to hold color (or with lemon juice).
