Broiled Persimmons with Mascarpone


2 Fuyu persimmons
For the garnish:
1 1/2 tablespoons honey
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
Crystallized ginger (optional)
For the Mascarpone Mixture:
5 ounces mascarpone cheese
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. 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 1/2 tablespoon lime juice over the tops.
  2. While persimmons are broiling, whisk together mascarpone, vanilla, and remaining 1/2 tablespoon lime juice in a medium bowl. Serve persimmons hot, each half topped with a dollop of mascarpone mixture and sprinkled with ginger, if desired.

Serves 2
