Baked Peaches Stuffed With Amaretti Biscuits, Walnuts & Raisins

About This Recipe

Are you looking for a delicious peaches recipe with a difference? If you are, you’ve found it! Here’s my baked peaches stuffed with amaretti biscuits, walnuts & raisins for you to enjoy.

The area around Mount Etna yields peaches that taste as though they must have come from the Garden of Eden. Their flavour intensifies with cooking, and in this dish the amaretti biscuits and walnuts give a crumbly, crunchy texture, the raisins add sweetness and the buttery juices flavoured with amaretto, wine and cinnamon are simply irresistible. Serve hot with vanilla ice cream.

Step By Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4. Take a peach half and enlarge the stone cavity slightly by removing a little of the flesh with a teaspoon. Chop the removed flesh and set aside. Repeat for all the peaches.
  2. Place the raisins in a small bowl or cup, pour over the amaretto liqueur and leave to soak for 20 minutes.
  3. To make the filling, put the chopped peach flesh, amaretti biscuits, 40g of the sugar, the egg yolk, cocoa powder, walnuts, cinnamon and half the butter in a small bowl. Mix well. Stir in the raisins and the soaking liquid.
  4. Grease a baking dish measuring about 18 x 25cm with butter and place the peaches cut-side up in the dish.
  5. Divide the filling between the peach halves, pressing it into each cavity. Sprinkle over the remaining sugar and pour the wine around the fruit. Dot the remaining butter on top of the filling. Bake for 30 minutes. Serve hot.

I love recipes that require just a few good-quality ingredients and are simple to make yet really have the ‘wow factor’, such as this pasta dish with mussels. You don’t have to use the bottarga - the dish stands alone without it - but a Sardinian cook would almost certainly grate it over the top of the finished dish.

Spiedini di pollo con insalata di fagioli e ceciChicken Skewers With Beans & Chickpea Salad

This is a great way to cook chicken – the sweetness of the marmalade combines with the smokiness and spice of the paprika to give a delicious glaze. I usually cook the skewers on a barbecue, but you can char-grill them too. When threading them, it helps to use the natural curved shape of the yellow peppers or onions at either end to keep the other ingredients secure.

Spaghetti with Eggs, Pancetta and Pecorino RomanoSpaghetti alla Carbonara

Carbonara is the Italian word for 'charcoal burner', so some people believe this dish was first made for charcoal workers in the Apennine mountains. The general view now, though, is that it was an urban dish invented in Rome. Note that cream is not used in an authentic carbonara, so none is included below. Fettuccine or bucatini can be substituted for the more usual spaghetti.

Pizza Volante ai SalumiPizza Stuffed with Mascarpone, Salami Milano, Bresaola and Parma Ham

Meat, meat and more meat – I love this pizza. The use of three different hams with cheese is delicious. Making that first cut into the pizza and enjoying all the flavours oozing out is worth any amount of time you spent preparing it. Picture after a hard day’s work eating this dish with a large glass of red wine – it’s the perfect ending to any day. If you prefer, add in mozzarella to get that...

Torta di cioccolato e fragoleChocolate & Fresh Strawberry Cake

Italians from the south don’t bake cakes all that often but my sister Marcella makes this for me whenever I visit and I love it. The combination of moist chocolate cake and fresh strawberries is wonderful and I can never only have one slice; in fact there is always a fight over who gets the last piece (I normally win!) The cake is also fantastico made with raspberries!
