Check out these peaches! Aren’t they glorious?! This was my third trip to Eckert’s. I just had to go one last time and do one last peach recipe.
These big, beautiful gems are just perfect for grilled peaches. The large surface area means lots of grill marks.
Don’t think you need an outdoor grill to make these. I’m using my Lodge iron grill pan that my favorite daughter-in-law got me for Christmas.
But before I grill the peaches, I’m going to make the Amaretto Whipped Cream. This is the same Amaretto that I used last week to make my Cherry Almond Dump Cake.
When you make whipped cream it’s best to put everything in the refrigerator or even the freezer if you can. It really does help the cream to whip up better. I put my bowl and whisk in the fridge this morning.
Start by beating the cream to soft peaks. The tops of the peaks should flop over.
Then beat in the powdered sugar and Amaretto until it’s combined. No need to beat to stiff peaks. We want the whipped cream to be a little soft.
When it’s done, pop it in the fridge while you grill the peaches.
Heat the grill pan on medium-high to high heat. You want it nice and hot to caramelize the sugars and get those much coveted grill marks.
Cut the peaches in half and take out the pits.
Brush both the pan and the cut side of the peaches the with the oil.
Lay the peach halves, cut side down, on the grill and LEAVE THEM ALONE! Don’t move them around, don’t be tempted to peek.
First of all, if you try to move them before they have a chance to sear they’ll probably stick and leave half of the peach on the pan.
Secondly, they need to stay in one place to cook and caramelize.
After a few minutes they’re ready to serve.
Let them cool or top them right away with your Amaretto Whipped Cream. I like it when the grilled peaches are warm and the whipped cream melts a little.
Sprinkle on a few sliced almonds and you have a fancy looking dessert that hardly took any time!
