Baked Peaches

It's that time of year where peaches are still available, but they are not always ripe for eating. A great way to use up any hard peaches is by turning them into a delicious dessert. By baking the peaches, they soften, and with a bit of extra sugar, they become deliciously indulgent, yet healthy. We've included amoretti biscuits, for some crunch.

Here's our recipe for delicious baked peaches:

Ingredients
  • 50g/2oz butter
  • 12 amaretti biscuits, crushed
  • 2 tbsp honey, plus extra for drizzling
  • good dash vin santo, or similar sweet dessert wine, plus extra for drizzling
  • 4 peaches, halved and stones removed
  • demerara sugar, to sprinkle
  • Ice cream/cream to serve
Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. Melt the butter in a saucepan, but do not let it brown.
  3. Mix together the crushed amaretti biscuits, the melted butter, honey and a dash of vin santo in a bowl.
  4. Place a heaped teaspoon of the mixture onto the flat side of each of the peach halves and place on a baking tray.
  5. Sprinkle with demerara sugar and drizzle with more honey and vin santo.
  6. Bake in the oven for 15-30 minutes until golden. Serve with ice cream or cream if required.
