I saw Graham Norton cook this on a recent episode of Gordon Ramsay's UK cooking show 'The F Word'. It looked really easy and tasty so I wanted to jot it down. On the show, Graham sprinkled lavender flowers over the finished product. I don't know about you but I can't easily get those even if I wanted to eat them. So, I have written the recipe down without them but you could add them if you wish.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Bring a pan of water to the boil.
  3. Plunge the peaches in for approximately 30 seconds - this makes the skin easier to peel.
  4. Drain and refresh in cold, iced water.
  5. Carefully peel the peaches once cool.
  6. Cut in half and remove the stones.
  7. In a large bowl mix the peach halves with the amaretto and maple syrup.
  8. Sprinkle over the sugar and mix well.
  9. Allow the peaches to sit in the marinade for a few minutes.
  10. Place the peaches, cut side up, on a non-stick baking tray.
  11. Spoon the marinade into the holes in the peaches to keep them moist while cooking, pour over any excess.
  12. Sprinkle with a little extra sugar.
  13. Bake in the oven for approximately 5- 8 minutes, then remove and baste with the cooking juices, return to the oven to for a further 5 minutes, or until the peaches are tender.
  14. Remove from the oven.
  15. Serve two peach halves per person, cut side down on the plate.
  16. Spoon a little crème fraiche on each plate and drizzle the remaining juices over the crème fraiche.
  17. Lightly crush the Amaretti biscuits and sprinkle over the plates.
