Aunt Caroline's Baked Peaches with Amaretti
There aren’t too many fruit recipes that I would choose for dessert. This is Aunt Caroline’s baked peach recipe, and this is delicious topped with crushed amaretti cookies and chopped almonds. Serve this dessert warm, with vanilla ice cream and/or whipped cream. Enjoy!
5 Amaretti Cookies, Crushed
4 Tbsp. Almonds, Chopped
3 Tbsp. Flour
2 Tbsp. Sugar
4 Tbsp. Butter, Melted
3 Ripe Peaches, Halved
Whipped Cream & Vanilla Ice Cream (Optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the crushed amaretti cookies, chopped almonds, flour and sugar. Add the melted butter and stir well. In a buttered baking dish, place the peach halves, cut side up. Spread the amaretti cookie topping over the surface of the peach half, lightly pressing to adhere. Bake the peaches until the peaches are tender and the topping is light brown, approx. 30-35 minutes. Cool slightly and serve with whipped cream and vanilla ice cream (optional).
