Directions:
Preheat oven to 350
Simmer diced peaches with Schnapps or peach nectar until peaches are tender, about 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from heat, add vanilla, and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, blending well.
In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture, alternating with peach mixture. Mix just until blended.
Spread batter into a greased and floured 9x5x3-inch loaf pan. Bake at 350 for about 55 to 65 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool on a rack in pan for 10 minutes; remove to cool completely.

Personal Notes:
When it's peach season, I cannot keep this bread in the house. The minute it's done it's eaten. I started freezing Palisade, CO peaches so I could make it in the winter time, offering a hint of summer during the negative 20 degrees often seen in Kremmling.
