Peaches are a wonder when it comes to flavor. Their sweet, juicy, with a slight acidity. It’s all there, flavor packed in a 4-6 inch circular fuzzy fruit.
Roasting peaches in the oven highlights the natural sweet flavors of the fruit. Peaches when roasted take on a caramelized flavor. Oh so delicious.
The broiler though is not the only way to roast peaches. How so? Well, during the summer months you can roast the peaches on your barbecue grill.
This recipe for roasted peaches is loaded with flavor, from cinnamon and mascarpone, to the roasted crunchiness of chopped almonds. And not to forget a drizzling of the natural sweetness of honey.
Did you know that there are two main types of spices labeled as cinnamon – Read More here: Cooking With Cinnamon
Peaches pair well with not just cinnamon, but also spices like nutmeg, ginger, allspice and cloves.
So if you want, you can change out cinnamon for one of these for mentioned spices or combined them and use pumpkin pie spice.
We suggest serving your roasted peaches with some shortbread cookies. Like these Lavender Rosemary Shortbread Cookies.
Roasted Peaches With Cinnamon Mascarpone
2 peaches, halved with pit removed
½ teaspoon raw honey, plus more for drizzling at the beginning and end of making recipe
¼ cup plain full fat Greek yogurt (reduced fat ok)
¼ cup Mascarpone cheese
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ cup almonds, roasted, roughly chopped
Pinch of salt
Position baking rack to the top of the oven for broiling. Preheat oven to Broil on Low
Place peaches cut side up on a foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle honey on each peach half so it’s evenly coated and broil on Low for 7 minutes or until edges are lightly roasted. *see Cook’s Notes
While peaches broil, mix together ½ teaspoon of honey, Greek yogurt, mascarpone cheese, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
Your peaches are so close to the heat source, and the broiler element can get very hot (even on Low) it’s ok to open the oven door a few times to check on them.
The peaches are ready when browning appears on the top and the peach is soft through the center when poked with a fork.
Let peaches cool at room temperature for about 15 minutes, then top each peach half with a dollop of the cinnamon mascarpone mix, chopped almonds, pinch of salt, and a final honey drizzle.
