Amaretti-Crusted Peaches

Prep: 7 minutes; Cook: 30 minutes

Baked almond-filled peach halves are a favorite summertime dessert. The almond flavor and the crunch of the amaretti cookies perfectly complement the sweet, juicy fresh peaches. Look for macaroon-type amaretti cookies in Italian markets, gourmet stores, and large supermarkets.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 peach half)

  2. 2. Combine first 4 ingredients in a small bowl; toss with a fork until well blended.

  4. 4. Bake, uncovered, at 375° for 30 to 35 minutes or until peaches are tender and cookie mixture is lightly browned (shield with foil to prevent overbrowning, if necessary).
