Grilled Peaches with Marscarpone Cheese

2 TBSP clarified butter
3 firm but ripe peaches (Flamin' Fury Peaches are the best), pitted and halved
2 tablespoons unrefined sugar
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese, room temperature
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/2 tsp freshly grated cinnamon
1/4 tsp cardamom seeds, freshly ground

Clean the grill very well and heat to medium-high temperature.

Mix the sugar, marscarpone cheese, yogurt and most of the cinnamon and cardamom (reserve a couple of sprinkles for the peaches).

Brush the peaches with the clarified butter and place flat side down.  Cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip, sprinkle the inside of the peaches with a little bit of of the cinnamon and cardamom powder.  Cook the round side down for an additional 2-3 minutes.  Place the grilled peaches in a small dessert bowl or plate and spoon on a large dollop of the marscarpone mixture in the center....yumbo!
