The simplest desserts are often the best and these grilled peaches wish mascarpone are no exception. It's even healthy-ish enough to have for a midday snack

Grilled Peach Halves with Mascarpone Cheese and Honey

 Colavita Olive Oil
 6 large ripe peaches, halved and pitted
 6 tbsp honey, plus more for serving (optional)
 8 oz mascarpone cheese, at room temperature
 ½ cup chopped hazelnuts
 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme

Preheat a grill to medium-high.


Brush the peach halves with Colavita Olive Oil and place them, cut side down, on the grill.


Cook until lightly charred, 2 to 3 minutes.


Transfer the peaches, cut side up, to a baking sheet, and drizzle them evenly with 4 tbsp of the honey.


Place the baking sheet on the grill and close the grill. Cook until the peaches are soft, about 5 minutes.


Using oven mitts, remove the baking dish from the grill, and place the peach halves on a large serving dish.


Divide the mascarpone evenly among the fruit, placing one dollop on each peach half.


Drizzle with the leftover 2 tbsp honey.


Top with chopped hazelnuts and fresh thyme.
