Ingredients

  • Olive oil
  • 3 firm but ripe peaches, pitted, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

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.
