Peaches and Mascarpone with Balsamic Reduction take advantage of seasonal indulgences, utilized at the peak of their harvest then paired perfectly with mascarpone cheese in this appetizer or dessert recipe.

This classic combo never goes out of style!
Peaches and Mascarpone with Balsamic Reduction  Summer dessert made easy and delicious. This recipe is a beautiful take on peaches and cream and makes a wonderfully simple finish to a summer meal.

A quick sit on the grill amps up the natural sweetness and juices of peaches. A hint of the grill gives the peaches a slight smokey flavor. Grilling peaches are super easy and just takes a few minutes.

  1. Remove the pit and brush each cut side of the peach with olive oil.
  2. Place the peaches cut-side down on the grill and cook undisturbed until grill marks appear until warmed through 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Serve as desired.

What if I don’t have a Grill?

If you are making this recipe on the stovetop, I recommend using a cast iron grill pan or cast-iron skillet if you have one. I like the flavor much better than using a non-stick pan.

Enjoy Peaches and Mascarpone with Balsamic Reduction for breakfast, brunch, dessert, or snack!

  1. Alternately, you can top with whipped cream or ice cream.
  2. For a savory meal starter, substitute goat cheese or blue cheese for the mascarpone cheese.
  3. Honey or agave nectar can be used instead of the balsamic reduction if you choose.
  4. Also, think about using other stone fruit in place of or in addition to the peaches. Apricots and plums would be lovely.

  1. 5 stars
    I'm very excited I happen to have all of these ingredients on hand. I was looking for something to do with left over Mascarpone.

  2. I have a white peach balsamic vinegar I have been wanting to try. Think I will do exactly what you did here, but with my peach vinegar instead of the balsamic. 😉
