Chef Kelli presents: Steak
Vanilla Bean Sugar
1 vanilla bean (split with seeds scraped)
1 cup of sugar
In a jar, place the vanilla bean and its seeds. Place 1 cup of sugar and shake well.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Heat a grill with a single layer of charcoal. When the coals are hot, brush the grill with a little oil to make sure the peaches don't stick. Place the peaches, cut side down, on the grill and cook for a few minutes, until they're slightly charred.
Place the peaches in an oven-proof dish; sprinkle each half with a little vanilla sugar. Combine the rum and amaretto and drizzle ½ of it on the peaches. Bake the peaches for about 10 minutes, until they are tender. Serve hot, at room temperature, or cold with crumbled amaretti cookies on top or with the cookies on the side with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
