The Missoni Family’s Pesche alla Piemontese con I’Amaretto

With Autumn officially here, we love to finish off our night with something warm and comforting. A dessert that’s not too sweet, but still hits the spot. This week at Superette we are taking inspiration from The Missoni Family and recreating their Pesche alla Piemontese con I’Amaretto, also known as peaches prepared in the Piedmontese style with amaretto.

Serves 8-10.

INGREDIENTS

1/2 stick unsalted butter, plus more for greasing the dish, at room temperature
7 yellow peaches, halved and pitted
14 Amaretti di Saronno cookies
4 1/2 oz dark chocolate, for grating
1 handful finely chopped fresh mint, for garnish

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Lightly grease the bottom of a 10 x 8-inch baking dish with butter and line it with the peach halves facing up in a single layer.
  3. In a bowl, crush the Amaretti di Saronno cookies. Roughly grate in the dark chocolate and add the 1/2 stick of butter. Using your hands, mix together the ingredients.
  4. Scoop a generous teaspoonful of the mixture into the heart of each peach, in place of the pit. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from the oven.
  5. Garnish with the mint and serve warm.
