Delicious ripe yellow peaches, married with soft amaretti biscuits and the juice of an orange…. heavenly and under 90 calories a serving!
I usually make a stuffing that has added butter, egg yolk and sugar with crumbled amaretti biscuits, then I pour a sweet dessert wine around them. Lovely, but rather heavy in calories! So to make it lighter, I simply crumbled the biscuits into the stoned peach halves, and used the juice of an orange, sprinkling the zest over the top. Served warm, with some greek yogurt and some more biscuit crumbs, or toasted flaked almonds, for decoration.
- 4 yellow peaches
- 4 amaretti morbidi (4g each)
- 1 orange
- 2 amaretti morbidi (8g)
- 4 tbsp greek yogurt
- Preheat the oven to 180c.
- Halve and stone the peaches and lay close together into an ovenproof dish, cut side uppermost.
- Crumble 1 biscuit into the cavity in each half and press lightly into place.
- Grate the zest of the orange over the peaches.
- Pour the juice of the orange around them.
- Bake for about 30 minutes until tender.
- Serve warm on a spoonful of yogurt and decorate with a crumble of amaretti or some toasted flaked almonds.
- Amaretti morbidi are small soft biscuits made from apricot kernels, almonds, egg white and sugar. You could equally use the more familiar crunchy amaretti or any almond-based biscuit.
