Earlier this week, I shared my secret weapon for savvy savings – All You Magazine – and offered a peek at the delicious grilled peach recipe the July issue inspired.
You all knew I wouldn’t just tease you with just a glimpse, so for those who were drooling over the peach goodness… you can now easily whip up this tasty treat using the recipe below:
Honey Almond Grilled Peaches
(Inspired by All You, Issue 7, July 26, 2013, pp 78-79)
Peaches, firm ripe (factor one half to a full peach per person)
1/4 cup Honey
1/4 tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
Almond Cookies (I used World Table Butter Almond Thins)
In a small bowl, crumble almond cookies. I used one almond thin per one half peach I planned to make (eg. for two peaches, use 4 almond thins.) Set aside.
In another small bowl, warm honey in the microwave for 15 seconds. Stir in vanilla. Set aside.
Halve peaches and remove the pits.
Heat grill, using medium-high heat.
NOTE: Ideally, make this dessert right after grilling your main course when the grill is already prepped and hot. If grilling only the peaches, be sure to oil the grill, if needed, and to pre-heat.
Use a basting brush to lightly coat the inside (cut side) of the peach with honey.
Place peach on the grill, inside (cut side) down. Grill 2-3 minutes or until grill marks appear and fruit is beginning to soften (see picture below for reference.)
Use thongs or spatula to flip peach over, bottom side (skin side) on grill.
Lightly brush cut side with honey. Spoon topping into the center of the peach (the pit cavity will act as a natural bowl.)
Grill for 3-4 minutes or until the fruit is completely softened.
Carefully remove from the grill. Serve and enjoy! For a special sweet treat, try the grilled peaches with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
