Brown Sugar Broiled Grapefruit


2 red or pink grapefruit
8 tsp packed light brown sugar
¼ tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp melted butter
2 Tbsp heavy cream
2 Tbsp non-fat or low-fat plain greek yogurt
1 tsp granulated sugar
¼ tsp vanilla extract

1. Position the oven rack about 3 inches from the heat source, preheat broiler. Line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
2. Cut each grapefruit in half, then trim a thin slice off the bottom so it sits level. With a paring knife or grapefruit knife, cut around each segment; remove any seeds. Place the grapefruit halves on the prepared baking sheet. Combine brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Brust each grapefruit half with butter, then sprinkle with about 2 tsp of the sugar mixture.
3. Broil the grapefruit, watching carefully and rotating the pan front to back once halfway through, until the tops are bubbling and golden brown, about 7-12 minutes.
4. Meanwhile, beat cream in a small bowl until stiff. Beat in yogurt, granulated sugar and vanilla just until combined. Serve each grapefruit topped with a tablespoon of vanilla cream.
