Recipe: Broiled Persimmons with Mascarpone

From Martha Stewart


4 ripe persimmons

3 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

9 ounces mascarpone cheese

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


Heat broiler, with rack 6 inches from heat. Slice persimmons in half crosswise. Place halves cut side up in a baking dish, and drizzle each half with honey. Broil until tops are golden brown and caramelized, 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove from oven; immediately drizzle 1 tablespoon lime juice over the tops. While persimmons are broiling, whisk together mascarpone, vanilla, and remaining tablespoon lime juice in a medium bowl. Serve persimmons hot, each half topped with a dollop of mascarpone mixture and sprinkled with ginger or sugar, if desired.
