  • 2 Tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1 lemon
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 whole peaches firm/ripe/halved
  • 8 ounces mascarpone cheese room temperature
  • 1 pint raspberries
  • 4 Vanilla dessert shells


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • In a large shallow baking dish combine butter, lemon juice, sugar and vanilla. Add peaches and turn to coat with butter mixture. Arrange, cut side down in a single layer.
  • Roast until peaches are tender and cooking liquid is syrupy and starting to turn a golden color. 15 - 20 min. Brush with vanilla butter sauce halfway through.
  • Place a roasted peach in a dessert shell. Fill the center with a dollop of room temperature mascarpone cheese. Drizzle some of the vanilla butter sauce. Garnish with mint leaves and scatter a few raspberries around the dessert shell.


Presentation Tip: Finish the dessert by garnishing with a mint leaf and sprinkle fresh raspberries around the dessert shell. Sprinkle a few dots of the vanilla butter syrup along the perimeter of the dessert shell.
Best Way To Peel Peaches: Fill a medium sauce pan 3/4 way full with water. Bring water to a boil then turn down to a simmer. Lower ripe peaches into the simmering water and blanch them for 1 minute. Drain and when cool enough to handle, the skins will fall right off.
