Grilled Peach and Raspberry Parfait

Serves 6

Prep Time: 1 hour

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Local, fresh fruit is readily available in the summer months at farm stands and markets. For those drawn to sweet peaches and raspberries, this recipe mixes fresh fruit with homemade cookies, creating the perfect sweet summer treat.


  • 6 parfait glasses
  • 3 large firm (but ripe) peaches, peeled, pitted, and halved
  • 3 tbsp. amaretto liqueur, divided, plus more for drizzling
  • 1 cup whipping cream, chilled
  • 2 tsp. rum
  • 2 cups crushed amaretti cookies
  • 2 cups raspberries, fresh or frozen and thawed
  • 1 (1 qt.) container French vanilla ice cream
  • 1/2 cup sliced toasted almonds


Place the peach halves in a bowl and pour the amaretto over them. Toss to coat and let sit for 20 to 30 minutes.

Preheat the grill to medium–high, 450°F.

Place the peaches, cut side down first, on the grill and leave for at least 2 minutes without touching. (You want grill marks, and if they’re moved too much, they won’t mark.) Once peaches are tender and marked, remove them from the grill and cut in 1/2-in. dice.

Whip the cream with the rum until stiff peaks form.

Place 3 or 4 pieces of peach in the bottom of each of 6 parfait glasses. Top with 4 or 5 raspberries and drizzle about 1 tsp. amaretto over the fruit. Cover with 1 to 2 tbsp. crushed amaretti and some ice cream. Repeat these steps one more time. Finish with fruit and amaretti and top with whipped cream and a few slivered almonds.
