  • sharp knives
  • chopping board
  • mixing spoon
  • mixing bowl
  • zester

Tips/Tricks

  • I used free stone peaches or yellow peaches in this recipe for their firmer texture which I felt was better for roasting
  • you can also grill the peaches on a bbq and/or grill pan instead of roasting and then drizzle the heated butter, maple syrup and vanilla on top
  • basil and tarragon would also work instead of thyme
  • these can be made in advance and then just reheated in the oven for a "fancy" brekkie, brunch or dinner dish but truthfully they are so simple to make I would just make them to order
