Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone & Honey | Easy Summer Dessert | 5 Ingredients or Less | DessertThis is a guest post from Christin of Blue Crab Martini

Summer is in full swing and that means it’s also peach picking season! Every summer our family spends a day in the local orchard picking as many peaches as we can carry. Although these sweet and juicy treats are quite tasty on their own, we often find ourselves with more peaches than the four of us can possibly eat. Fortunately, we’ve come up with some creative recipes over the years to make sure no peach goes to waste. This recipe for Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone and Honey was a home run and quickly became one of our family’s favorite summertime desserts.

Grilling peaches is a great way to enhance their naturally sweet flavor because the heat from the grill gives the outer edges a nice touch of caramelization. If you’ve never grilled fruit before, or have been hesitant to give it a try, you’re in for a real treat! It’s a fast and easy way to add a new level of flavor to your dishes. The sweetness of the peaches combined with rich and fluffy whipped Mascarpone and salty pistachios makes for a truly delicious and decadent bite.

Although this recipe for Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone and Honey may sound like a fancy dessert, it’s actually quite simple and inexpensive to prepare. Five everyday ingredients and about 20 minutes are all you need to make this impressive dessert. Just gather fresh peaches, Mascarpone, cream, honey, and pistachios and you’re all set! Enjoy!

Assemble your ingredients: peaches, honey, mascarpone cheese and pistachios.

Here is what you need:
6 ripe peaches (any variety will work), sliced in half, pits removed
8 oz Mascarpone
½ cup heavy cream
½ cup honey
½ cup roasted and salted pistachios, finely chopped

Slice your peaches in half and grill them.

Step 1: Fire up your grill (or heat up your grill pan if you’re cooking indoors, in which case you may want to lightly grease your pan first). Place the peach halves sliced side down onto the grill. Let the peaches cook until they are tender and have a light coating of caramelization, about 8-10 minutes depending on your grill. Then remove from the grill and place on a cooling rack, sliced side up.

Combine marscapone cheese and heavy cream in a mixer for the topping.

Step 2: While the peaches are grilling, begin making the whipped Mascarpone topping. To do this, add the Mascarpone, heavy cream, and ¼ cup of the honey to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. Whisk on high speed for 3-4 minutes, or until the Mascarpone has a nice light and fluffy texture. Feel free to taste test to see if any additional honey is needed to meet your taste preferences.

While the grilled peaches are still warm, add the whipped marscapone topping.
Step 3: While the peaches are still warm (but not steaming hot), add a dollop of the whipped Mascarpone to the top of each peach half.

Sprinkle pistachios over the finished marscapone peach.

Step 4: Sprinkle the chopped pistachios over the Mascarpone topped peaches.

Drizzle honey over assembled peaches, serve, and enjoy.
Step 5: Drizzle the remaining honey over the peaches. Enjoy!
