Italian Grilled Amaretto Peaches are a Summer hit!

I have a peach tree in my backyard and I can’t wait until the fruit ripens. From plain old, fresh peaches to peach pie to peach cobbler to peach preserves, I can’t seem to get enough. This simple recipe of peaches grilled with butter is one of my favorites. It doesn’t get any easier or more delicious than this!

Grilled Amaretto Peaches

Serves 4

  • 1 pint heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 teaspoon amaretto flavoring
  • 4 ripe peaches, pitted and halved
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Grated nutmeg, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons brown sugar

In a mixing bowl, combine cream, sugar and amaretto flavoring; whip until stiff peaks form. Refrigerate mixture. Heat grill to high. Brush peaches with butter and grill until slightly soft and just cooked through. Sprinkle peaches with some of the nutmeg, cinnamon and brown sugar. Top peaches with a dollop of whipped cream.
