These were pretty tasty, especially for a recipe that was from a so-called healthy eating magazine. Only I didn't quite make them according to the actual recipe... the main straying points being I used real sugar and well, a tad bit more than they did. Also, having lived in many places, I can assure you that outside of Germany, quark can be a difficult ingredient to get your hands on. So although the quark was really quite good, my future attempts at this will contain mascarpone instead... which is far more decadent and I am quite sorry to say, not very healthy.
(or Nectarines or Plums, whatever works for you)
4-6 peaches or other large stone fruits, cut into halves and de-stoned
about 1/2 cup quark (or mascarpone)
1-2 Tbsp vanilla sugar, to taste
1-2 Tbsp cookie crumbs (about 2 cookies - I used digestives)
a few drops of almond extract
blackberries or whatever berries you like
powdered sugar, optional, garnish
Preheat a broiler (grill) and have a small roasting pan ready to go.
Mix together some quark or mascarpone with a few drops of almond extract and enough vanilla sugar to make it taste sweet enough to you.
Fill each peach half with a loving dollop of the creamy mixture, mounding it a bit.
Sprinkle with some cookie crumbs.
Set into the roasting pan and heat under a broiler a few minutes (5-10ish), until the tops start to look a bit brown and the filling is getting melty and goopy and yummy.
Set a couple of peach halves onto a dessert plate and garnish with some berries, dusting with a bit of powdered sugar if you like.
