Two gorgeous peaches from the Farmer's Market were turned into this yummy and super easy treat today. Soooo good. This is a perfect dessert on a summer evening when you’ve already got the grill fired up. Grilling the fruit makes the natural sugars of the fruit caramelize and really deepens the flavor and the sweetened ricotta adds a little protein.
Shelly's Grilled Peaches and Cannoli Filling
2 Fresh, Ripe Peaches, halved and pitted
1 teaspoon Canola Oil
1/2 cup Ricotta Cheese
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup
dash of Cinnamon
Mix ricotta and SF syrup and set aside. Preheat BBQ grill or indoor grill pan. Brush peach halves with canola oil. Grill cut side down for about 4 minutes until nicely browned. Turn grill for an additional 3-4 minutes. Spoon a dollop of ricotta cream in the center of each peach half and sprinkle with cinnamon. Serve warm. Makes 4 peach halves.
Highlights of the Day:
* Worked an AM shift this morning and by random chance got to talk with my pal and blog reader Jenn on the phone. Looking forward to meeting you in LA chicka!
Don't forget if you are anywhere Philly or LA I'd love to meet you. Come hang out with Melting Mama and I.
Come party Halloween night in LA with me. I just came up with a cute costume idea finally. So excited. If you are coming already or plan to comment or let me know somehow so I can put you on my list to find.
* Well not really today but this weekend... went to the Beach. It was a really great day. Walked forever. Had a nice picnic. And Errr Ummmm because feeding the squirrels is against the law I might have accidentally dropped some peanuts ;), Went shopping at the outlets over by the beach and bought a great pair of "good butt" pants. You know when you find a pair that makes your ass look way better than it really is.
