Amaretti Stuffed Peaches



 
This is something I have wanted to make for a long time, but I never got around to it, because . . .  I either had the peaches and no amaretti, or the amaretti but no peaches.   This week my stars must have been aligned because I finally had everything in place to do them . . .  but then I couldn't find the recipe I wanted to use.   Grrr . . .  I hate it when that happens, and it happens all too often to me!  I need to create a folder that I save all the recipes in that I want to cook one day, instead of just mentally filing them in my head.  My head is a notoriously bad filing cabinet, and with each year that's passes it's not getting any better!
 
So anyways I kind of just made this up in my head, based upon what I thought we would like and what I thought would work.   I used beautiful white fleshed peaches that were just the perfect balance of sweet and tart . . . they were not overly ripe.  If you are going to be baking fresh fruit to be served in this way, it is probably best that they still be quite firm.
 
I crumbled the amaretti biscuits into a bowl and added some ground almonds to them, along with a bit of sugar, some Disaronno (which is what I had, but you could also use Amarreto, or any almond flavoured liqueur), some of the peach flesh which I had scooped out from the centre of the peaches and an egg yolk to bind it all together.
 
I stuffed this into the hollows of the peaches and sprinkled them with a bit more sugar, and I cut a thin slice of butter and laid it on top of each.   Sprinkled them with a bit of apple juice (or processco if you happen to have it) or even just water . . .  and then I banged them into the oven to bake.  

These were Heavenly served warm with some cream for pouring.   Do you hear me"  HEAVENLY!  Absolutely flipping gorgeous!  I can't find enough words to describe how delicious they were and let me tell you I have eaten some pretty delicious desserts in my time. Hands down this was my all time favourite.  No kidding.  I hope you'll try them.  If you do I think you will agree.  BLISS ???  You may want to double the recipe.

This just may be the most delicious dessert you will ever taste.  I used white peaches for this, but you can use any colour you want, or even nectarines or ripe apricots.  It's very adaptable.
