Playing How To Make Maple Vodka Peaches | Mary McCartney (Paul McCartney's daughter!)

Cookbook author, co-founder of the Meatless Mondays movement + host of "Mary McCartney Serves It Up" on Discovery+ Mary McCartney (yep, Beatles icon Paul McCartney's daughter!) shares an easy dessert recipe of maple vodka peaches, using a grill pan.

Ingredient swap: As a passionate vegetarian cook, Mary's show is all about sharing her favorite ideas for meat-free dishes. She serves this healthy dessert with vegan ice cream—but if you enjoy dairy, you can use traditional vanilla ice cream.

Grilled Peaches With Whipped Cream & Honey

Peach & Ricotta Crostini

Blueberry Peach Quinoa Crumble


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ripe peaches, halved, pit removed with teaspoon to make a well
  • 8 teaspoons vodka
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup 
  • 3 tablespoons shelled pistachios, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh tarragon leaves
  • Store-bought vegan vanilla ice cream, for serving


Serves: 4


Heat a grill pan over medium-low heat. Pour in the olive oil. 

Arrange the peaches cut-side up in the grill pan. Carefully pour 1 teaspoon vodka into each well and allow to cook for 7 minutes so the vodka heats and infuses into the peaches. 

Spoon ½ tablespoon maple syrup into each well and cook for 1 minute. Turn the peaches over and cook until the sauce begins to caramelize, about 7 minutes. 

While the peaches are cooking, toast the pistachios in a small dry pan over medium heat, tossing occasionally, until they begin to brown, about 1 minute. Remove from the pan. 

Serve the peaches on a platter. Spoon any excess sauce on top, scatter with toasted pistachios and sprinkle with the tarragon. Serve with ice cream on the side.
