Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone Cheese

Total Time:
35 min

6 servings


Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or prepare the barbecue (medium-high heat). Lightly brush the grill pan or rack with oil. Place the peaches on the grill pan and do not move the peaches, otherwise you will not have those great grill marks. It takes about 2 to 3 minutes per side to get those grill marks. Grill the peaches until the grill marks are formed, slightly softened and heated through, about 5 to 6 minutes total.

Meanwhile, stir the sugar, brandy, and lemon juice in a medium bowl to blend. Set the brandy mixture aside.

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

Meanwhile, stir the mascarpone and vanilla in a small bowl to blend.

Divide the grilled peach mixture equally among 6 coupe dishes. Pour the wine over the peaches. Dollop the mascarpone mixture atop the peaches, and serve.

The grilled peaches were one of the best non-chocolate desserts I have had. I did modify based on the other reviews. I did not use the wine in the mixture. Also instead of the mascarpone and vanilla mix, I had salted Carmel gelato - sooo yummy!!!! Great light summer dessert! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make this recipe throughout the summer months by request of friends and family! Modified it a little, I leave out the wine (Honestly, it seems a little much). Instead of wine, I sprinkle a little finely chopped toasted pecans and then add the cheese. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this tonight for a BBQ with friends. I did not use the white wine (honestly, I forgot!) but I'm glad because I think it would make it too sweet. Also, I used more vanilla in the mascarpone than called for - double or triple probably. It was very easy to make and didn't take me away from socializing because the preparation is almost non-existent. Will definitely make again - and have already recommended it to a friend who couldn't join us! Delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the first time I have made this and I was really excited to try it because the peaches I bought were so sweet. Well, It was not that great, I would say this is just average. I would not serve it to guests at all. I will not make this again either. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have made this several times at our outdoor barbecues. I do not use the wine and the cheese. Instead I used a good brandy, chopped some walnuts and added it to the mixture. I served it with whipped cream on top. My guests loved this version. Good luck! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I did this at a dinner party and it worked perfectly. The only thing I changed was the cheese. I used a local pear goat cheese instead of the mascapone to make it a totally local dish. The guests raved especially my sister who is gluten and dairy intolorant. Finally a dessert our whole family can enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super quick, a hit every time I make it. The best part is being able to finish this off quickly while guests are over. Also great for summer cooking and not a lot of heat in the house. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was so excited about this sounded elegant, rich and yummy. Yummy it was not! It was AWFUL! I prepared it exactly as directed. In my opinion, the dry white wine ruined it. I modified the recipe by omitting the wine AND Mascarpone cheese. Instead, I used a dollop of real vanilla ice cream and added fresh raspberries. DELISH! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an easy and simple recipe i can prepare in 20 mins. Brandy is a must as it brings the wonderful flavor. the second time i made it we drank all the wine during dinner. but i still served it as a dessert without wine. Still taste wonderful. Be careful on the quality of the wine as it makes the dramatic difference. choose something a bit sweet and something you would drink. a great success. thanks giada. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The first time I tried this recipe I didn't care to much for the mascarpone with just the vanilla so I added some of the brandy marinade and it was just delicious. But after watching todays show with the Angel Food Cake and Mascarpone cream I will add the whipping cream to the mascarpone the next time I do the grilled peaches.. I will most definitely use this for my guests. item not reviewed by moderator and published
