Grilled Peaches with Almond Cream

Serves: 4

Hands On Time: 

Total Time: 


Almond Cream
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Grilled Peaches
1/3 cup honey, plus more for serving
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
4 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
1/4 cup toasted slivered almonds, for serving


To make the almond cream: In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat all of the ingredients on medium-high speed until soft and fluffy, 2 to 4 minutes.

To make the peaches: Heat a grill over medium-high heat.

In a small saucepan, combine the honey, butter, salt, cinnamon and cloves and cook over medium heat until the butter has melted and the honey has thinned. Whisk to combine and remove from the heat.

Place the peaches in a small baking dish and brush on all sides with the honey mixture. Transfer the peaches to the grill cut side-down and cook until slightly charred, about 3 minutes. Flip and brush with another coating of the honey mixture. Cook for an additional 3 minutes and transfer to a serving plate.

Top the peaches with the almond cream, sprinkle the almonds over the cream and drizzle with honey. Serve warm.

About the recipe

Peaches and almonds have a great affinity for one another, and the pairing of sweet, nutty almond cream with caramelized grilled peaches is no exception. Grilling the peaches adds a slight bitterness that brings depth to the dessert.
