Grilled Peaches with Honey Cinnamon Whipped Cream

July 30, 2015

The grocery stores and farmer’s markets in my corner of West Michigan are starting to fill their shelves with baskets of locally grown peaches. They’re so pretty with their shades of deep red, orange and yellow. Sweet and juicy, they’re a refreshing treat on a warm, mid-summer day.Michigan Peaches

Grilled peaches are a wonderful way to end a bar-be-que with dessert. They’re simple and fast to make, and this method really brings out the natural flavor of the fruit.

To halve the peaches, use a pairing knife to slice a circle all around the peach to the pit. Then twist each half in opposite directions while pulling gently. The halves should just pop apart. Run your pairing knife around the pit to loosen it, then remove.Grilled Peaches

Brush the cut side of each half with melted butter and place the cut sides down on a hot grill. Grilled PeachesCook three to four minutes, then brush the tops with butter and flip. Sprinkle each half with cinnamon sugar. Cook another 3 to 4 minutes to allow the cinnamon mixture to caramelize.Grilled Peaches

For the honey cinnamon whipped cream, beat heavy whipping cream until fluffy using an electric mixer and whisk attachment. Slowly add in the honey and cinnamon while continuing to beat. For best results, chill your bowl and whisk in the freezer for 10 minutes prior to making the whipped cream.Grilled Peaches with Honey Cinnamon Whipped Cream
