Smoked Peaches served on cedar planks, finished with mascarpone, honey, and chopped pistachios is an easy — yet awe-inspiring dessert.
 
With peach season in full swing, I felt remiss to not share this gem of a recipe from my book, Healthy Electric Smoker Cookbook, on GrillGirl.com.
 
This is the perfect light dessert after a hearty smoked meal. 
 

Peach recipe with 5 ingredients 

The beauty of this peach dessert recipe is that it only takes 5 simple ingredients, many of which you’ll most likely have on hand at home:
  1. peaches
  2. mascarpone
  3. honey
  4. cinnamon
  5. pistachios
While peaches are not always in season, this recipe works well for any stone fruit. You can cook with whatever fruit you can find in-season, and use Asian Pear in the off-season.
 
This recipe can be made on any grill or smoker, and even in your oven.
 
When cooking planked peaches on your grill or smoker, the main thing to keep in mind is that you should:
  • First, soak the cedar planks in water for 20 minutes beforehand and…
  • Then make sure you don’t put the planks directly over the flame. Cook with indirect heat.
 

Where can I find cedar planks?

Grocery stores are a good place to buy cedar planks. Look for them in the grill section. You might also be able to find cedar planks at Home Depot near the grills. And, of course, there is always Amazon as well.
 
Lastly, this recipe can be made with different swap outs to suit your dietary needs.
  • PALEO SWAP: If you are eating dairy-free, switching to coconut ice cream will make this dessert paleo. 
  • LOW-CARB SWAP: Swapping the honey with low-carb Lankanto Maple-flavored Sugar-free syrup will keep this a lower carb dessert and keep you in ketosis.
  • LOW-CALORIE SWAP: To make this a low-calorie dessert, replace the mascarpone with classic Cool Whip.
Enjoy and let me know how it tastes! robyn@grillgirl.com

What is plank cooking?

Plank cooking is a cooking method where you heat your food on a wood plank, often made from cedar wood.

Planking allows you to retain moisture in your food, while imparting a subtle wood flavor from cedar or whatever wood is used for the plank.

You can cook almost anything on a plank, from fruit and vegetables, to fish, to pork, to desserts like this peach treat.

Plank cooking has been around for a long time and many cultures have their own methods of cooking food on a wooden plank.
