Yield: 4 servings


4 ripe persimmons
  • Garnish
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • Crystallized ginger or turbinado sugar (optional)
  • Mascarpone Mixture
  • 9 ounces mascarpone cheese
  • 1 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 tablespoon lime juice over the tops.

2. 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.
