Ingredients

  • 4 peaches ripe
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 200 g / 3/4 cup mascarpone
  • 1 tbsp erythritol
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 1 tsp cinnamon plus some more for the nuts
  • handful of hazelnuts

Instructions

  1. Cut your peaches along the seam and twist the two halves in opposite directions until they separate. Depending on the variety and ripeness of peaches, this can take a little perseverance, muscle and/or prayer. Remove the pit and brush with some melted butter.
  2. Heat the griddle pan over medium heat and smear some more butter on the pan. If you put the peaches straight on the grill without any help, they'll end up looking a little dry and sad.
  3. Grill for ca 5 minutes until you get those pretty stripe marks. Turn halfway through for a criss cross pattern.
  4. Mix your mascarpone with 1 tbsp erythritol, 1 tsp vanilla paste (or use ground vanilla) and 1 tsp cinnamon.
  5. Crush or grind the hazelnuts, then dry-roast them over a low heat in a pan, moving them around frequently until they are browned. Be careful not to burn them! I added some extra cinnamon to them
  6. Scoop the mascarpone mix over the peaches, sprinkle over the nuts and serve

Recipe Notes

If you do not have a griddle pan, there's no need to despair. The peaches can also be grilled in the oven!
