One of my favorite summertime desserts is peaches and cream. In its simplest form, this fruit treat is made of canned peach slices and whipped topping but in my version here, I upped simple flavors by grilling the fresh peaches with a balsamic and honey glaze, and layering the grilled nuggets with sweetened cream. Insanely delicious!
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 yellow peaches
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
In a small bowl, combine balsamic vinegar, honey and vanilla extract. Whisk until blended. Reserve half of the balsamic mixture.
Halve peaches, remove pit and peel skin. Liberally brush peach halves with half of the balsamic glaze and grill on hot coals until slightly softened and caramelized, turning once or twice and brushing occasionally with glaze. Remove from heat, let cool and cut into cubes.
In a bowl, combine cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk. Using a hand mixer or wire whisk, beat until blended and smooth.
In 4 serving cups, layer grilled peaches and cream mixture. Lightly drizzle with the remaining balsamic glaze.
