Roasted Peaches with Mascarpone


  • 4 peaches halved and pitted, cut a little more out from where the pit was to make room for more mascarpone
  • 8 ounces mascarpone at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • Fresh tarragon and chopped pistachios for garnish optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Stir together mascarpone, vanilla bean paste and cinnamon and refrigerate at least 30 minutes
  3. Brush a baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the butter and arrange peaches in the baking dish cut side up - you can slice of a small piece of the back for them to sit flat in the dish
  4. Whisk together honey and butter and pour over the peaches, use a pastry brush to make sure they are covered all over
  5. Roast until softened and somewhat browned, 25 - 30 minutes
  6. Fill each of the peach halves with the mascarpone mixture
  7. Garnish with chopped tarragon leaves and pistachios, if using
