It’s prime time for peaches right now, and this is a remarkably easy – and remarkably delicious – way to use up the ones on your counter that are going too ripe. Roast them up with some honey, butter, and vanilla and serve with a crumbly streusel-like topping and some cinnamon whipped mascarpone for a delicious summer treat!

So I realize it’s been about forever since I posted an original recipe! Let me not blame a long month of moving, house hunting, and work that never cuts me a break. Let me not add that it’s also difficult finding and scheduling time to take over a kitchen in a house that isn’t yours! Let me also not cry that the movers packed my DSLR and I really, really, really hope they don’t break it but at the same time, I am just not a skilled iPhone photographer.

I mean, the basic photography principles still apply, whether you’re shooting with your phone or a top of the line camera. But you really have to apply those principles. Lighting matters a whole heck of a lot more, as does staging. There’s not as much detail captured so things are harder to fix in post-production.

But you know what? I’m actually kind of excited about that. I’m looking forward to actually having to do the work, and re-learning how to shoot photos. Making the time and paying attention to detail is only going to help me shoot better, and I’m excited to keep learning. And then, when I finally do get my camera back, I’ll be able to make the most of it.

Peaches

In the meantime, this is a starting point with Florida thunderstorm lighting and the “props” I cobbled together out of my in-laws’ kitchen on short notice, because I actually had an unscheduled weekend afternoon, everyone was cozied up watching TV rather than planning an outing thanks to the rain, and we had a bunch of peaches that needed to be used up.

I’ve been playing with a bunch of ideas for peaches, but I’ve seen a lot of recipes come up combining them with whipped mascarpone. I decided to roast these with honey, butter, and a little bit of my homemade bourbon vanilla extract to really tease out their flavors. Then I added some streusel-like crumble topping and some whipped mascarpone.

These suckers are delicious. We polished off a lot of peaches with this technique – so don’t ask me how well they keep. None of ours survived to see if they reheat well.

Ingredients
  

  • 1/2 cup mascarpone
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 4 peaches ripe, halved, and pitted
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions
 

For the Crumble:

  • Start by making the crumble. Preheat your oven to 375F and line a small baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Mix together the sugar, brown sugar, flour, and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Cut in 2 tbsp of butter and add the olive oil. Gently work the mixture with your fingers until it forms large stresuel-like crumbs.
  • Transfer to the sheet pan and spread in an even layer. Bake, shaking up the crumble about halfway through, at 375F for 10-12 minutes or until it's a nice golden brown. Set aside and let cool.

For the Whipped Mascarpone:

  • Combine the mascarpone, cream, remaining cinnamon, and 1 tbsp honey in a small dish. Let sit at room temperature while you roast the peaches.

Roasted Peaches:

  • In a small sauce pan, melt 2 tbsp of butter. Stir in the remaining honey and the vanilla until combined. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • Halve and pit the peaches. Place the peaches in a baking dish and brush with about half of the melted butter, vanilla, and honey mix.
  • Bake at 375F for 15 minutes. Brush again with the melted butter, vanilla, and honey mix and bake an additional 5 minutes.

Serving:

  • Serve the peaches, including juices scooped from the pan, topped with the crumble and the mascarpone, as much as you like!

Pairing Note: A lot of wines have peach character in their flavor profile, but you don’t want to over-peach yourself! For this sweet desert, a sparkling Moscato or a blanc de noirs Champagne {champagne that’s made from black-skinned grapes, and contains a very different flavor profile – one of the grapes used is actually pinot noir!} work well, or one of the things I’m finding as I keep learning about wine is that a rosé goes literally with just about everything. They’re so versatile!
