Adding peaches to a mouthwatering vanilla ice cream recipe I got from my mother-in-law resulted in this fabulous flavor. My boys say it's the greatest and think it tastes best served outdoors under a shade tree!Lisa Tenbarge, Haubstadt, Indiana
“Our family loves ice cream, and this homemade version is a family favorite,” says Catherine MacRae Lyerly of Winston-Salem, North Carolina. “I came up with the recipe when I needed to use up the fruit from our peach trees.”
Desert for Jodi Trigg of Toledo, Illinois is delectable with Praline-Peach Brownie Sundaes, which use pre-made brownies and store-bought ice cream to create a thick and rich peach sauce. Pecans add a bit of crunch to a perfect sweet ending on a warm summer night.
"I first tried this recipe to serve at my grandparents' 50th anniversary celebration—it was a wonderful way to top off an already delicious event," recalls Jenni Anderson of Bullhead City, Arizona. "Everyone really appreciated the homemade treat."
Peachy Sundaes are a treat grandmother Betty Claycomb has enjoyed since she was a teenager. "Years ago, a friend worked at a fancy hotel where this deliciously different dessert was served. They still look and taste elegant when made at home, but they're very simple to prepare," assures this Alverton, Pennsylvania field editor.
THIS is a simple yet perfect ending to a meal for two on a summer's evening.
Whenever I make this dessert, I'm reminded of my childhood, when my favorite treat at the soda fountain was a huge banana split.

When our kitchen crafters dished up Helen Banycky's ice cream, they were struck by its refreshingly real flavorand by how the shape of the scoops suggested actual peaches. To expand that look, they rolled the scoops in gelatin for a fuzzy appearance. "They do resemble peaches," Helen, who's from Carterville, Illinois, told us after we shared what our cooks had one. "I'll have to try that trick, too!"Helen Banycky, Carterville, Illinois
