Fresh Peach Sauce

Recipe by: Shirl and Schumacher's Hotel

1/4 C. butter
1/2 C. packed light brown sugar
1 large orange
1 large lemon
1/3 C. honey
3 T. Grand Marnier, or other orange liqueur
2 T. brandy
6 fresh peaches, peeled and sliced (about 5 C.)
1 qt. vanilla ice cream

Melt butter in large skillet. Add brown sugar; cook over medium high heat, stirring constantly for 1 - 2 minutes, until bubbly. Grate rind of orange and lemon and juice both. Add rinds, juices and honey; cook, stirring occasionally, over medium heat 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add liqueur, brandy and peaches. Return to medium high heat; cook 3 minutes or until syrup thickens slightly and coats peaches. Spoon over ice cream and serve immediately. Serves 6.

I usually make this ahead and then zap it in the microwave when I'm ready to serve dessert.
