I have a similar recipe to use for vanilla sauce, and I could not be more in love. I am ecstatic to find this peach version that is so simple to make. I love peaches, and the sauce is excellent for many ideas including pound cake and angel food cakes. You could even use this on pancakes for a sweet switch for breakfast ideas. What an excellent recipe. I wish I had an easy way to save it on this site.
