I would eat a mushroom over a cupcake any day of the week.
I have to say, I do indulge into the white crystals when the uncontrollable temptation wins. But sweetie, savory morsels will always win with me.
This is why I love fruit, especially when it's grilled. There's a natural sweetness that comes out that caramelizes to perfection. This dish is paired with a kiss of sweetness in the whipped cream, then topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar. Because if you're going to eat sugar ... eat the sugar.
Since dessert is usually served last, sometimes it feels like it should also be made in that order. The beauty with this dish is that you can grill it first - especially if you have a bunch of saucy concoctions on the menu - and pop everything in the fridge for a cool treat later on in the party. So pucker up sugar, cause you're "kiss the cook" apron is working full time today.
Grilled Peaches with Whipped Cream
About 4-6 servings
6 Peaches, halved and pitted
3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
Pinch of brown sugar for topping, optional
2 cups whipping cream
4 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Tablespoon Vanilla
- Coat the halved and pitted peaches in vegetable oil.
- Grill the peaches, cut side down, on the hot zone of the grill for about 3-5 minutes. Carefully turn the peaches over and grill for about 3-5 more minutes. Cool the peaches to room temperature.
- In a large bowl, use a wire whisk to whip the whipping cream. Use large circular motions to beat the cream until you it firms up to the desired consistency. Add in the vanilla, powdered sugar, and cinnamon and whisk until evenly incorporated. Keep in the refrigerator until ready for serving.
- Slice the peach halves, dollop the whipped cream and sprinkle with brown sugar to serve.
