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.

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.
