Grilled peaches, mascarpone, yogurt and crumbled Amaretti make a quick and dessert with cheesecake- like flavor.


  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 t vanilla bean paste
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 8 large freestone peaches
  • 3 T butter, melted
  • 20 Amaretti cookie snaps
  • 8 mint sprigs for garnish (optional)


  1. In a small bowl combine mascarpone cheese, yogurt, vanilla and lemon zest. Cover and refrigerate.
  2. Heat grill to medium high and oil grates with a bit of butter. Slice the peaches in half and remove the pits. Brush the cut side of the peaches with melted butter. Grill for about 3 minutes cut-side down, until there are some nice grill marks on the bottom of the peaches. Remove from the grill and let cool.
  3. Put the Amaretti in a ziplock bag and roll with a rolling pin to crumble. Cut the peaches into bite-size pieces. Assemble 8 parfaits by layering the ingredients in individual 8-ounce mason jars as follows: Put peach pieces from 1/2 peach in the bottom of each mason jar. Follow with a tablespoon of the mascarpone and yogurt mixture and a teaspoonful of the Amaretti crumble. Repeat with a second layer. Cover the jars with lids and refrigerate until ready to serve. Remove lids before serving and garnish with a sprig of mint.
