I served this on top of waffles. Just enough sweet. I did not add the almond extract due to preferences. Would love to try it on vanilla ice cream!

My husband loved this. I will use less extract the next time.

Super yummy sauce! Of course anything with fresh peaches is going to be delicious :) I didn't use the almond extract.

I didn't have any fresh peaches, so I used frozen and just cut back on the water. We ate this over pancakes and my son kept asking for more!

With extra water and 2 cups of peaches, this came out lovely, but the amount of cornstarch the recipe calls for would be way too much for 1 cup of peaches. We ate it over dutch babies.

Great summertime dessert. Double the recipe as it won't be enough. This is a quick, simple dessert.
