Grilled Peaches with Honey and Goat Cheese

June 30, 2012

Grilled peaches with honey and goat cheese is a classic summer dessert.  On the grill, the fruit becomes soft and caramelized and takes on a mild smoky flavor.  You can do this same cooking technique with almost any large fruit, nectarine and pineapple are especially delicious.  The peaches provide a nice contrast in flavor to the goat cheese, sweet and tart.  If you want to add a bit  more texture, crumble some graham crackers or amaretti cookies over the top.
