Peaches Foster

1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon, ground
4 fresh peaches, sliced
1/3 cup rum

In a saucepan melt butter with brown sugar and cinnamon. Cook over medium high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes.

Add sliced peaches, heat through, carefully  turning to coat.

Heat rum until warm in a small saucepan. Pour slowly over the peach mixture and ignite immediately. Do not stir. Spoon the sauce and peaches over vanilla ice cream.
