This quick, uncomplicated skillet dessert makes the most of fresh peaches.
Combine sugar, salt, and cinnamon in a large bowl; add peaches, and toss to coat well. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add peaches, cut sides down, and sprinkle with remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture from bowl. Cook, turning peaches after 5 minutes, until sugar caramelizes and peaches are tender, 7 to 8 minutes.
Add brandy; cook until reduced, about 1 minute. Add butter and cream; swirl to melt butter and combine. Cook until thick, about 1 minute.
Serving idea: Serve peaches with crepes and whipped cream, or with pork chops.
