Roasted Amaretto Peaches

Serves 8

Peaches, ginger snaps, and amaretto—what's not to love? In this easy recipe, we dollop fluffy amaretto-scented meringue into juicy peach halves before roasting to perfection.


  • 4 ripe peaches, halved and pits removed
  • 4 tablespoons ginger snap cookie crumbs (from 4 cookies)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped blanched almonds
  • 2 tablespoons Amaretto liqueur
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Vanilla ice cream or sweetened whipped cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Scoop out about 1 teaspoon flesh from center of each peach half to make a small cavity for the filling. Chop scooped out flesh and place in small bowl. Add cookie crumbs, almonds, and liqueur. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Place peach halves cut-side up on prepared baking sheet.
  4. Add egg white to a dry, clean, medium-sized bowl. Whisk until foamy. Sprinkle in sugar and continue to whisk until stiff peaks form.
  5. Gently fold cookie crumb mixture into egg whites. Spoon filling into cavities of each peach half.
  6. Bake 20 minutes or until topping is puffed and golden.
  7. Transfer to dessert plates and serve immediately. Accompany with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired.
  8. Cook's Tip:
  9. To make cookie crumbs, whirl in a food processor or seal cookies in a plastic bag and crush with a meat mallet or rolling pin.
