Peaches & Pecan Foster

Servings: 4
Peaches and Pecan Foster, a twist on the New Orleans favorite, Bananas Foster. Also, this version doesn't need to be "ignited".

1/2 cup cranberry juice cocktail
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
4 peaches, peeled, pitted and thickly sliced
1/4 cup toasted chopped pecans
2 tbsp. butter or margarine
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Vanilla ice cream
Whipped cream or frozen whipped topping, thawed

In a large saucepan, heat cranberry juice cocktail and brown sugar to boiling; add peaches. Return to boiling. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5-10 minutes, or until peaches are tender. Stir in pecans, butter or margarine, and cinnamon. Cool slightly, about 5 minutes. Serve over ice cream and top with whipped cream or thawed whipped topping.

Makes 4 servings.
