We are hitting record high temperatures and the thoughts of turning on the oven are far from being at the forefront of our mind. However, when you will bite into the peaches of this recipe, you will never be the same again.
Imagine tender sweet roasted peaches drizzled with honey and roasted in the oven. Served with a sweet, but not too sweet mascarpone cream over it. Each bite is just bursting with flavor.
All you need is 5 ingredients and only 20 minutes of cooking.
TIP: The recipe required vanilla sugar. I make my own vanilla sugar but adding all the seeds and the outer pod of a vanilla bean to a jar of regular sugar. I have been doing this for years and it is not only super easy, but a much better way to flavor your sugar. The uses are endless and with the baking season just around the corner, you will be ahead of the game.
Enjoy this Mascarpone Roasted Peaches dessert now as the peaches are in season and super sweet. Perfect afternoon snack for the little one’s also.
