- 5 yellow peaches
- 1 heaped TBSP brown sugar
- 4 crushed amaretto cookies or biscotti
- 2 TBL roughly chopped almonds
- 4 tsp butter
- 1/3 cup orange juice or Marsala
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees.
Halve the peaches, remove the stone and approximately one teaspoon of peach flesh from each peach. Remove the skin from the 5th peach, dice the flesh and add this to the peach flesh you have removed from the other 4 peaches.
Add the diced peaches to the crushed amaretto cookies and mix with the sugar and almonds.
Spoon the mixture back into the peach halves and place them in a baking dish. Put half a teaspoon of butter on each of the halves and place the dish in the oven for 40 minutes.
Remove from the oven and sprinkle the orange juice or Marsala around the peaches. Bake for another 15 minutes. Serve warm with ice-cream, whipped cream or mascarpone and sprinkle each with crushed amaretto cookies.
