  • Bowl
  • Griddle pan


  • 200 g mascarpone cream cheese
  • 2 tsp vanilla paste
  • 4 peaches large ripe but firm, halved and stones removed
  • 2 tbsp melted butter
  • 8 amaretti biscuits crushed


  • Put the mascarpone and vanilla paste into a bowl and mix until smooth. Place in the refrigerator.
  • Place a griddle pan over a high heat. Meanwhile, brush the cut side of the peaches with the melted butter.
  • When the pan is hot, place the peaches on it, cut-side down, and griddle for three minutes. They are ready when the flesh is golden brown and chargrilled lines have formed.
  • Transfer the peaches to a serving plate. Place a spoonful of the chilled cream in the middle of each half.
  • Sprinkle with the amaretti and serve straight away.
