Summer Peaches with Cherries

1-1/2 cups white Zinfandel, rose wine, or cranberry-apple drink
1 2-inch piece stick cinnamon
3 medium peaches, halved and pitted
1/2 cup fresh sweet cherries, pitted
1/3 of a 6-ounce package (2 ounces) white baking bar
1/2 teaspoon shortening
In a 10-inch skillet bring wine or cranberry-apple drink and cinnamon just to boiling. Add peach halves and cherries; cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until peaches are just tender. Remove peach halves and cherries with a slotted spoon to a shallow serving dish. Cook remaining wine mixture, uncovered, over medium heat about 10 minutes or until reduced to 1/2 cup. Remove and discard cinnamon. Spoon liquid mixture over peaches and cherries.

In a small, microwave-safe bowl melt baking bar and shortening in a microwave oven set on 100 percent power for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes, stirring once. Let mixture cool slightly.
