Snackin’ with Sarah Sellers: Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Almond Whipped Cream

As promised, here’s today’s second recipe in honor of tonight’s American Idol finale. I wouldn’t consider myself much of a baker. Actually I never bake anything, but I have a major sweet tooth. One thing I do love to make is whipped cream!

It’s peach season in Texas, and what goes better with peaches then whipped cream. Actually ice cream probably does but I had to set some limits somewhere. This is a pretty brainless recipe but sometimes those are my favorite kinds.

Serves 4

  • 4 peaches, slightly ripe
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Honey
  • Zest from one lime

Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium high heat. Spray with cooking spray to prevent sticking. Slice the peaches in half.

Grill, skin side down, for 4-5 minutes.

While the peaches are grilling pour the whipping cream in a large mixer, make sure the bowl and whisk are ice cold, and mix until stiff peaks are about to form.

Add the sugar, vanilla and almond extract.

Continue to blend until still peaks form.

Make sure you don’t over whip the mixture or it will turn into a buttery consistency.

Remove the peaches from the grill.

Slice into wedges, around the pit.

Put the slices from two halves in a small ramekin. Sprinkle with the cinnamon.

Drizzle with a bit of honey.

Top with a spoonful of whipped cream and sprinkle with the lime zest.

Bon Appétit!
