Pesche ripiene

Summer, the season I love the most for fresh fruits: the variety, the abundance, the colors, the intense fragrances. If you ever get bored of fresh fruit try this recipe, one of my favourite summer desserts!



4 big yellow peaches
200 g of Amaretti crunchy cookies
100 g of sugar
1 egg yolk
½ glass of white wine


Turn on the oven to 170°C.
Wash the peaches, cut in half and stone them. Use a spoon to remove from each peach some pulp from the centre and cook it with the sugar for about 15 mins. Then mix it in a bowl together with the crunched Amaretti and the egg yolk (if you like you can add a drop of sweet liquor, such as the Sassolino).
Fill the peaches with the mixture and add on top of each one a knob of butter and some sugar.
Pour the wine in the tray, organize the peaches and cook in the oven for about 30 minutes.
You can serve them warm or even cold, they are also delicious the next day!
