Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Honey Butter


Delicious & Easy- Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Honey Butter

The decadent days of summer are definitely here.  At least at my house:)  I’ve been seeing lots of images of grilled peaches lately and I decided it was high time to give it a try.  This dish was so easy.  I had no idea, but grilled peaches make for a super simple and delicious summer dessert.  A bite of a fresh peach is like tasting summer itself.

Seasonal peaches make for great desserts

My boys think this dish is like eating peach cobbler without the crust.  I have to admit it’s an accurate portrayal except that the grilled aspect of this dish adds an extra dimension.

Grilled Desserts- Cinnamon Honey Butter Grilled PeachesI served my peaches with a big dollop of cinnamon honey butter on top and a little extra cinnamon sprinkled on as well.  I heard no complaints from my crowd:)

An easy summer dessert on the grillI adapted my cinnamon honey butter recipe from here.  But I completely winged the grilling of the peaches.  It is so uncomplicated.  I’ve included the recipe below just in case you want to give this a try during one of our last summer days in August.

Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Honey Butter

Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Honey Butter

5 or 6 ripe peaches- cut in half, pit removed

olive oil for brushing on cut side of peaches

I placed the peaches cut side down on the grill after they had been brushed with olive oil.  I let them cook for about 5-7 minutes.  I took a peak at about midway through to see how they were looking.  I determined their readiness by simply looking at the degree of grill marks.  I have no idea if this is how it is supposed to done, but it seemed to work for me. 

Cinnamon Honey Butter

1/2 pound unsalted butter at room temperature

7 1/2 tablespoons of honey (more or less depending upon preference)

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

a pinch of nutmeg

additional cinnamon to sprinkle on top of peaches

To create the butter its as easy as mixing all the ingredients together.  You can use a large industrial sized mixer, but I used my handheld immersion blender and it worked great. 

Once the grilled peaches are ready simply apply a dollop of butter on top of the peaches and wait for the butter to melt into gooey yumminess.  I also sprinkled a bit more cinnamon on top of each individual peach slice.  This recipe can easily be tweaked for individual preference.

  17. April Yedinak says

    I have never tried grilled fruit, but your pictures have me salivating!

  18. Just made these! We don’t have a grill at our apartment, so I cooked them in a skillet with olive oil rubbed on them. They turned out well! I only hand mixed the butter. I think the immerser would have helped. My fiance’s only complaint was that it tasted really buttery. It is true. We split this in half and it still used a whole stick of butter! It was still delicious. Vanilla ice cream is a perfect side with this!

  19. Melissa Botelho says

    Yum! I am goign to have to make those. These are great as i am trying to lose weight.

  20. Christy Anderson says

  24. That looks so good. I love peaches and usually just eat them as is but I think I will try this.

  25. I never would have thought about the pairing of peaches and cinnamon honey butter, It looks really delicious and I am tempted to try it next time we break out our grill.
