Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.
  2. While the peaches are grilling, begin making the whipped Mascarpone topping. Add Mascarpone, heavy cream, and ¼ cup of the honey to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment. 

  3. 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.)

  4. While the peaches are still warm (but not steaming hot), add a dollop of the whipped Mascarpone to the top of each peach half.
  5. Sprinkle the chopped pistachios over the Mascarpone topped peaches.
  6. Drizzle the remaining honey over the peaches. Enjoy!
