Baked Peaches with crushed amaretti Biscuits

Serves: 4 | Preparation Time: 40 min

Ingredients 

  • 4 ripe yellow peaches
  • 8 amaretti biscuits crushed
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¼ cup dark rum
  • whipped cream (as much as you want!)

Instructions 

Preheat the oven to 180ºc. Rinse the peaches under cold running water and dry with paper towels.
Cut the peaches in half and remove the stones. Use a teaspoon to make a hollow about the size of a golf ball in each peach half.
Place the peach flesh in a blender and add three-quarters of the amaretti cookies and 1/8 cup of sugar. Mix well and use to fill the peaches.
Use the butter to grease a baking pan large enough to hold all the peach halves snugly in a single layer. Arrange the peaches in the pan. Drizzle with the rum and sprinkle with the remaining amaretti cookies and sugar.
Bake for about 30 minutes.
Serve hot or at room temperature.
