It’s possible that I ate this for breakfast. I’m not confirming, but it might have happened. Probably it did. But it’s not the worst thing I couldn’t have eaten, right? Chocolate cake would be way worse. I mean, there were peaches. Peaches are fruit! Fruit is healthy! Even when it’s drowning in a rich mascarpone cream. True fact.
Let’s discuss other things that I may have eaten for breakfast in my life. Apple cobbler (fruit!), chocolate pecan pie (nuts = protein), and there may have been one occassion of ice cream serving as my first meal of the day(cream is milk, right?). So in the grand scheme of things, I think this was the right decision. I stand by it. And that is totally not stopping me from eating this for dessert later. Or maybe even for lunch.
Peaches and Mascarpone Cream
2 large peaches
8 oz mascarpone cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon sugar
1-2 tablespoon half and half
Blanch the peaches in boiling water for about 1 minute in order to remove the skins. Drain and allow to cool; then peel the skins away. Slice the peaches using a paring knife and set aside.
Beat together the mascarpone, vanilla, sugar and cream. Add however much cream you would like to get a desired consistency. I added 2 tablespoons of cream and it was a fairly runny mixture, I might go for a thicker cream next time.
Layer the peaches and cream in a bowl or glass. Enjoy at any time of day!
