Grilled Peaches With Mascarpone Cheese

Ingredients

  • Olive oil, for brushing grill
  • 3 firm, but ripe peaches, pitted and quartered
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. brandy (we used amaretto)
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

Instructions

Lightly brush the grill with oil. Grill peaches 2 to 3 minutes per side, moving the peaches only to flip them to create nice grill marks.

Meanwhile, stir together the sugar, brandy (or amaretto) and lemon juice in a medium bowl; set aside.

As the peaches are ready, remove them from the grill and place them in a shallow baking dish. Top them iwht the brandy mixture; toss to coat. Set aside for 15 minutes and allow to marinate, tossing occasionally.

Meanwhile, stir together the mascarpone and vanilla in a small bowl. Divide the grill peaches equally among 6 plates. Serve with a dollop of the mascarpone mixture. Refrigerate any leftovers. Serves 6.
