This simple peach sauce is a great way to enjoy fresh, juicy peaches. The sauce is a simple mixture of diced fresh peaches, sugar, and cornstarch. A small amount of vanilla is added to the sauce along with a bit of (optional) ground cinnamon.

Use this peach sauce as a topping for waffles or pancakes, or spoon over biscuits, pound cake slices, or scones for delicious shortcakes.

For extra color and fresh flavor, add sliced strawberries or blueberries to the sauce just before it's done.
