- In a medium pot, heat half-and-half and brown sugar over medium heat, whisking until steamy (but not boiling).

- Pour custard into a bowl and allow to cool (refrigerating helps) for 30 minutes.
- Add peach puree and diced peaches to cooled custard. Set aside.
- Line 9 regular muffin cups with foil liners. Carefully pour the peach-custard mixture into the muffin cups.
