grilledpeacheswithricotta Recipe: Grilled Peaches with Ricotta Cheese

One of the best aspects of late summer is the abundance of local ripe peaches and their many uses.  In our family I especially enjoy grilling them.  It’s simple to prepare not to mention how fancy they look plated.  This would make an excellent dessert to serve guests after a nice meal.  Topped with fresh ricotta cheese and a drizzling of a balsamic reduction, you will feel spoiled but appreciate how fresh and healthy this dessert is.  Enjoy!

    Hi Alice! What a beautiful dessert! I love peaches, especially grilled. There is something decadent about fruit that is sometimes lost in the world of pastries and other complicated desserts (not that I don’t love those too!) Thanks for sharing such a simple, beautiful recipe! –Rachael

    This looks simple and delicious. I’ve never tried grilling peaches before, but I’ve done just about every other fruit. Balsamic reduction sounds fabulous w/ this dessert.

    I get to make Fresh Peach Ice Cream for a dinner party next weekend!

    Lovely. This is definitely a perfect summer treat. I need to get me some more peaches. Yum!! I’m loving that balsamic brown sugar reduction, too.

    I just saw a recipe in Gourmet for grilled nectarines with ricotta ice cream which I have been wanting to make but got side tracked. This looks even easier since the ricotta is just added. We love grilled peaches with balsamic — one of our favorite flavor combinations. Yum!
