Ahh, Summer is finally here. Time to dust off your grill and get to cooking. Wait a minute, don’t most men love to cook on the grill? They sure do but it’s time for them to relax and enjoy Father’s Day with a special grilled dessert. -And yes ladies, it can be done with only a few ingredients. Quick and simple!
With Father’s Day only weeks away, ladies it’s time for us to “mind” the grill and make our favorite men in our lives something sweet and I have the perfect recipe, my Grilled Peach Crisp. They’re so delicious! When is comes to grilling, dads like to cook it all. From juicy steaks, seafood, chicken, and burgers. I know my husband likes to believe he is the king of grilling, but not for this recipe it’s time to leave the sweetness to us, ladies.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty sure men who enjoy cooking would be all in for this Summertime dessert but this time, it’s all about treating the special dads out there a day without grilling.
One of my all-time favorite Summer fruits to eat on a sunny day is a peach. Not just an ordinary fuzzy peach but a yellow juicy peach. It’s a must have and is an ultimate pleasure to enjoy during Summer.
My Grilled Peach Crisp recipe brings just enough sunshine, smiles, and contentment to all. This is one of those southern desserts that has the right amount of sweetness and tenderness that you can serve all Summer long.
-And since you will only need a few ingredients, it will be enjoyed in no time. Preparing my Grilled Peach Crisp takes 20 minutes and 10 minutes on the grill. Giving you more time to spend with your husband, dad or that special man in your life on Father’s Day.
For this recipe you will need:
- 4 Yellow Peaches (Cut in halves and pitted)
- 4 Tablespoons of Butter
- 1/4 Cup (Packed) of Light Brown Sugar
- 1/4 Cup of All-Purpose Flour
- 1/2 Cup of Granola
- Vanilla Ice Cream
Begin by preheating your grill to medium-high heat. Combine the butter, light brown sugar, all-purpose flour, and granola in a bowl. Mix well. Next, take your peaches then cut in half. Be advised that you will need a pairing knife to remove the pit from the peaches.
Once they have been cut in halves, place two peaches cut side up on aluminum foil. I used Reynolds Wrap Non-Stick Foil with this recipe but you can use any brand that is non-stick.
Next, spoon in your granola filling into the center of each peach half. Place both peaches together in the middle of the foil. Take the ends of the foil and fold them towards the middle then take the middle and do the same. Leaving room to steam your peaches.
Place your foil packets on the grill for 10 minutes. Turning occasionally in-between. Remove from the grill and let the peaches rest in the foil for a few minutes.
Use caution when opening. Serve warm with a side of vanilla ice cream.
Father’s Day only comes once a year. It’s time to spoil those Dad’s that are hard working and are dedicated to making sure their families are happy. Making a simple and yummy dessert is a great way to show our appreciation. My Grilled Peach Crisp is so delicious with vanilla ice cream although whipped cream can be used as a substitution. It’s the perfect treat to serve after a nice dinner or to have after a hard long week of work. Spoil yourself and your family with this heavenly sweet tasting dessert.
The time has come, tell me what is your favorite dessert inspiration to make for Father’s Day.
I would love to hear about your creations.
