Baked Peaches

Due to an overwhelming demand (one person). Here's the recipe for the baked peaches.

4 ripe freestone peaches
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup finely chopped almonds
6 Italian almond macaroons (such as Amaretti) crushed
1 tablespoon Amaretto
1 egg yolk

1. Preheatr oven to 350 degrees. Cut peaches in half from stem to root end. Give a little twist to free one side from pit. Gently twist pit from peach half and discard. Place peach halves, cut side up, in a greased ten inch baking dish. I used Pam.

2. In a medium bowl, combine brown sugar, almonds, macaroons, Amaretto, butter, and egg yolk. Beat with a fork to blend well. Stuff each peach hollow with almond mixture. Bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until peaches are soft and still hold their shape. Serve warm. To be even more sinful, you can top with whipped cream.

I got this recipe from a book titled 365 Easy Italian Recipes.

Sounds great. I may try with some Bosc pears that are in my fridge, peaches haven't been good around here lately.

Does it work with clingstone peaches?

Can you do them in the microwave?

SRF sinfully pushing the boundaries of good taste...

I'll try it too!

I'll go further than sinful. The 8th deadly sin would be putting vanilla ice cream between the peaches and the whipped cream.
