Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone

Continueing my week long series on Peaches, I bring to you this amazingly simple recipe.  There’s honey, butter and peaches.  What could be wrong with that?!  I made these for my family and my dad especially loved them.  I think he ate half the tray but who’s counting, right?  Grilling the peaches actually carmelizes the sugar in the honey giving them a sweet smoky flavor unlike anything I’ve ever tasted.  These would be a perfect dessert on a warm day when you already have the grill out.  Quick, easy and delicious.


8 ounces Mascarpone cheese
6 medium peaches, halved and pitted
2 tbsp butter
4 tbsp honey, divided
1 tbsp rosemary, minced plus one whole sprig


Bring Mascarpone cheese to room temperature. Heat grill to medium high heat.

In a small saucepan, melt butter and 2 tablespoons honey and cook on low heat for 1 minute while constantly stirring.  Add rosemary sprig and simmer on medium heat for another minute.  Remove from heat and remove rosemary sprig.  Using a pastry brush, baste cut side of peaches with honey.  If you don’t have a brush you can simply dip the cut side of the peaches into the honey butter mixture.   Add peaches to grill cut side down and cook for 4-5 minutes.  Turn peaches and baste again with honey butter mixture and cook for 3-4 more minutes.

Remove peaches from grill and plate on individual plates or platter. Add one tablespoon Mascarpone per peach half, drizzle with remaining honey butter and plain honey and garnish with minced rosemary.
