BAKED STUFFED PEACHES with Amaretti

Traditionally, this delectable Italian dessert is made with amaretti.




Ingredients
4 large peaches
4 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup crushed amaretti







Cream together the sugar, butter, and egg yolk in a small bowl.  Add the crushed amaretti to the creamed mixture and stir well.

Pour boiling water over the peaches and leave for 2-3 minutes.  Peel and halve the peaches and remove the pits.  Enlarge the cavities slightly by scooping out some of the flesh with a pointed teaspoon.  Add the peach pulp to the egg mixture and blend well.






Pile the stuffing into the peach halves and arrange them in a buttered ovenproof dish.  Bake on the center shelf of a preheated over at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes, or until the peaches are soft but still shapely.

Serve the peaches warm.  If you like, serve with a bowl of whipped cream.
