4 Ripe but firm peaches, halved and pitted
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup Mascarpone
1/4 cup best-quality honey
Preheat gas grill to medium-high. Brush cut sides of peaches with butter.
Note: Mascarpone, or Italian-style cream cheese, is available at specialty food stores and most supermarkets. You may substitute fresh riccota cheese or creme fraiche.
Makes 4 servings.
Variation: You may substitute honey for raspberry sauce.
What you need:
12 ounces fresh raspberries (frozen also works)
3 tablespoons water
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
For the fresh raspberry sauce:
Puree the raspberries, water, and sugar in a food processor until smooth. Then, strain through a fine mesh strainer to remove the seeds. Press the solids against the strainer to get as much of the sauce as possible. This can be made ahead and refrigerated for up to 2 days.
