Grilled peaches with mascarpone
Grilling peaches releases their juice and gives them an extra rich flavor. For variety also try grilling pineapple—-- just grill it a couple minutes longer.
- 2-4 ripe peaches
- 1 t vegetable oil
- 1 t butter
- 1/2 c mascarpone cheese
- 2 T sugar
- 1/4 t vanilla
- pinch of cinnamon
Heat the grill to high.
Mix mascarpone with sugar and vanilla and set aside.
Halve the peaches: cut around the diameter of the peach then twist gently to split the two halves. One half will have the pit; remove it with your fingers.
Brush the peach halves with a bit of vegetable oil to prevent sticking on the grill.
Place peaches cut side down on the hot grill and grill for 3-5 minutes until the whole peach is soft and the skin begins to pull away.
Serve warm with mascarpone cheese and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
