OMG! This is to die for delicious! I had really large peaches so we each had half of one. Very easy to prepare and because the oven was already heated from dinner this worked out perfect. We love the addition of the liqueur. Thanks for posting. :)
What a lovely, gourmet recipe!! I used white peaches. I toasted my almonds in a little skillet with some almond oil then crushed them while I stirred them into the butter mix. I used 2 TBSP Grand Marnier to drizzle over the top before baking. Served with fresh whipped cream on top. Fabulous combination of flavors and beautiful on the plate. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!!
