Grilled Peaches with Maple Mascarpone

I’m sure I’ve said it before, and I know I’ll say it again – there’s nothing better than the seasonal fruits and vegetables of summer! Most people look forward to the summer months all year, if not for extended hours of daylight and pool time, but definitely for delicious BBQ fare like juicy watermelon, fresh tomato salad, and luscious fruit desserts. I’ve been trying to take full advantage by eating corn with many meals and using the grill whenever possible. My newest way to enjoy the summer bounty is through this Grilled Peaches with Maple Mascarpone dessert. If you’ve never had grilled peaches before, you must find out what you’re missing. You’ll love the slightly warmed and softened peaches alongside the mascarpone cheese that’s been flavored with maple syrup, cinnamon, and lemon juice. This simple dessert, which takes minutes to assemble, is anything but lackluster.

I hope you’re enjoying all that summer has to offer!
