Grilled Peaches and Cream

A couple of Kuhn Orchard’s fresh peaches and a bit of leftover cream turned into a refreshing and light summer dessert – the perfect ending to our market-fresh dinner.

Serves 4.

4 peaches
3/4 cup heavy cream
4 teaspoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
ground cinnamon
hazelnut or vegetable oil

Heat a grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. 

Slice each peach in half and remove the pit.  Then slice each half again, into two round disks.  Brush both sides of the peach slices with a small amount of oil.  (I used hazelnut oil, but vegetable oil will work just as well.)


Beat the cream on high speed until it begins to thicken.  Add sugar and continue to beat on high until soft peaks form.  Stir in vanilla extract and a few pinches of cinnamon.


Grill the peaches on medium high heat until they are tender and well-marked (about 2-3 minutes per side). 

Remove peaches from grill (4 slices per plate) and immediately sprinkle with several good pinches of sugar.  Top with whipped cream and garnish with a few more pinches of cinnamon.
