3 firm yet ripe large nectarines, pitted and halved

1/4 cup amaretto

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, chilled

1/2 cup whipping cream, chilled

1 tablespoon sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 teaspoon fresh lemon zest

1/4 cup chopped pistachios


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Brush the nectarines with the amaretto. Grill until golden, tender and you have achieved beautiful grill marks, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, 6 minutes total. Remove from the grill and let cool slightly.
  3. Add the mascarpone, whipping cream, sugar, lemon zest, and vanilla to a large mixing bowl and beat with a hand mixer until soft peaks appear.
  4. Plate the grilled nectarines on a platter and top each with a dollop of whipped mascarpone and a sprinkling of chopped pistachios. Serve immediately.
