2 Peacheshalved with pit removed

1/2 teaspoon Honeyplus more for drizzling at the beginning and end of recipe

1/4 cup Plain Greek yogurt (any fat %)

1/4 cup Mascarpone cheese

1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/4 cup Almonds, roughly chopped

Pinch of Salt


  1. PREPARE THE OVEN: Position baking rack to the top of the oven for broiling. Preheat oven to Broil (500ºF).
  2. GLAZE AND BROIL: Place peaches cut side up on a foil lined baking sheet. Drizzle honey on each peach half so it's evenly coated and broil for 7 minutes (See Note 1). The peaches are ready when browning appears on the top and the peach is soft through the center when poked with a fork.
  3. MIX THE FILLING: While peaches broil, mix together 1/2 teaspoon of honey, Greek yogurt, mascarpone cheese, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  4. ASSEMBLE: Let peaches cool at room temperature for about 15 minutes, then top each peach half with a dollop of the cinnamon mascarpone mix, chopped almonds, pinch of salt, and a final honey drizzle.


NOTE 1: Watch your peaches while they broil! The difference between broiling and burning can happen in a matter of 1 minute. While my peaches took only 7 minutes to get a little roasted around the edges, your peaches might take more or a little less time. Because the broiler is so hot and your peaches are so close to the heat source, it's ok to open the oven door a few times to check on them.

Make ahead instructions: While this dish is best served right after being broiled and lightly cooled, this baked peach dessert can be semi-prepared ahead of time.

  • Prep the day before: Halving and removing the pit of the peaches, chopping the almonds, and mixing the greek yogurt and cinnamon mascarpone topping.
  • Must be done right before serving: Glaze peach halves with honey, broil in the oven, and assemble the toppings.

Greek yogurt note: You can use any plain Greek yogurt, it just has to be the thick Greek kind. Regular plain yogurt is not as firm and won't give you the desired cinnamon filling shape or texture.

Peach ripeness note: You can use peaches at any stage of ripeness. Just know that a firm, unripe peach might take a little longer to broil and an overly ripe peach might be more juicy and probably not hold its shape very well.
