Recipe by Raquel Grinnell
A wonderful Giada de Laurentis recipe. The amaretti in the topping can be substituted with biscotti. I personally don't like the marscapone on top and usually substitute vanilla ice cream....
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄3 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 1 cup amaretti cookie, coarsely crushed
- 3⁄4 cup sliced almonds
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 3 lbs nectarines, pitted and sliced into thick wedges
- 8 ounces blueberries
- 3 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
- 1⁄2 cup mascarpone cheese
