Grilled Peaches with Agave Amaretto Sauce is from the Cook'n with Agave collection.

Place agave in a medium size, heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 4 minutes until agave is a deep golden brown. Add butter and stir until melted. Add liqueur and cream; simmer for 2 minutes more, stirring frequently. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Meanwhile, wash peaches and cut in half; discard pits. Brush lightly with agave and place cut side down on a barbecue grill. Cook over medium-low heat for 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly charred. Remove from grill and place on 4 dessert plates. Top each with ice cream and drizzle with warm sauce. Sprinkle with Agave Almonds.

AGAVE ALMONDS:
Stir together butter, agave, brown sugar and cinnamon. Toss with almonds. Bake at 350F for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring twice. Spread almonds onto a buttered piece of foil and let cool completely, then break apart.
