Warm peaches atop vanilla ice cream are spectacular. If peaches aren't available, substitute nectarines; even canned peach halves will work. Only one thing is required: a meticulously clean grill grate so your tender peaches don't soak up other flavors, like onion.
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted

Prepare a medium fire in the grill.
- Dip peaches into boiling water for about 30 seconds to loosen their skins. With a sharp paring knife, pull away skin and discard. Halve and pit each peach, and place them in a large bowl.
- Pour butter, maple syrup, and Cointreau over peaches, and use a rubber spatula to gently and evenly coat them.
- Lift peaches out of the mixture and place on the grill. Reserve the juices remaining in the bowl. Grill lightly until heated through, about 5 minutes per side.
- Place peaches on serving plates and drizzle remaining juices over each serving. Garnish with cherries or berries, if desired. Serve at once.
