The idea for this recipe came to me unexpectedly while riding the chairlift in Telluride, CO. I love my time on the chairlift to reflect, imagine and explore new ideas. A lot of recipes come to me while I’m skiing. This Broiled Grapefruit with Brown Butter Maple Mascarpone is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before. Gotta say, one of my most delicious creations yet!
Have you ever broiled fruit? It brings out so much of it’s natural sweetness and really heightens it’s over all flavor.
Let me know what you think!

Oh man, this is awesome! I love that you thought of it while on the chairlift – It’s been a long time since I’ve been snowboarding, but there’s such a nice openness and sense of peace that is a fantastic catalyst for creativity.
I bet this would also work really well with some grilled/broiled stone fruit!
It sure would Evan! I suggest you try those out…peaches would be beyond!!
Such a beautiful treat!
These are beautiful Marla!!
Thanks so much Heather!
What a treat, I’m obsessing over that brown butter maple mascarpone! I have a feeling I could eat that on anything!
How can I find the recipe for the mascarpone? I even purchased your cookbook and can’t find it there or on this website.
Hi Laurie, first of all I’m so happy that you have my cookbook. I really hope you are enjoying it! You can find Mascarpone in most markets, I typically purchase the BelGioioso brand and love the results in my recipes.

Love love the broiled grapefruit topped with a creamy cheese! Omg, this just looks amazing!
These look amazing! And make for a quick dessert, too!
My family went to england when I was in high school and went to breakfast at a place that served a version of this broiled grapefruit. We all got so hooked that we kept going back to the same place every day. SO GOOD! And this recipe brings back memories 🙂
I do the same! When I find a place with great food…I keep going back again & again. Especially when I travel!
