Grilled Peaches – with Vanilla Mascarpone

This is a great summer dessert which will impress all your friends. You could sprinkle some chopped mint on top to make it extra "summery". I used the mascarpone but you could just as easy go with some vanilla ice cream. Remember that the peaches must be soft and juicy, not to firm!!....ehhhh that could have meant something else :)

4 peaches, halved and stone removed

2 tbsp olive oil

4 tbsp caster sugar

1 vanilla pod, seeds scraped out

250g mascarpone cheese

3 dl razberries

2 tbsp honey

4 servings

1. Put the peaches in a bowl, drizlle the olive oil and 2 tbsp of sugar over and coat the peaches well. Grill on the meat side down on a hot grill for 5 minutes. Lower the heat on the grill, turn the peaches and cook for another 5 minutes.

2. Put the mascarpone cheese in a bowl and add the vanilla seeds, rest of the sugar and mix together.

3. Serve with some razberries and drizzle the honey on top.

Gorgeous dessert. Peaches are just starting to ripen up in our area of the US and I can't wait to get some on the grill!
