Grilled Peaches w/Bourbon Vanilla Whipped Cream

photo creds:

Sweet treat found on with a bit of tweaking. Their recipes never disappoint. Peaches are abundant and at their peak in the summer months so take advantage and bring out their even sweeter side by grilling them.

Size: serves up to 12

1 cup heavy cream
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp bourbon
6 peaches, halved (w/pits removed)
olive oil


Whip the cream in an electric mixer, adding the sugar, vanilla, and bourbon as it starts to thicken. Continue whipping until soft peaks form, about 4 or 5 minutes. Refrigerate.

Heat a gas grill to medium heat. Brush a very light layer of olive oil on the cut side of each peach half. Place the peach halves face down on the grill and leave anywhere between 5 and 10 minutes, depending on how quickly your grill cooks. Allow peach halves to warm through and soften a bit. You want those grill lines.

Gently remove from grill (or pan) (they may stick a tiny bit), flip over, and top with a big dollop of whipped cream.

*(Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Brush a very light layer of olive oil on the cut side of each peach half. Put the peaches face down on the pan, then cover with a medium sauce pan turned upside-down to create a dome over the peaches. Our sauce pan covered about 4 peaches, so you can cook them in batches depending on how big your grill pan and sauce pan are.
Cook peaches for about 6 to 8 minutes, until there are distinct grill marks and the peaches feel warmed through and slightly softened.
