    Kozmic Blues's Note:

    Years ago, my grandmother and great-aunt went to Italy for their cousin's daughter's wedding. They ALWAYS tell the story of this glorious table full of these delectable cookies shaped like little peaches. My great-aunt, being the baker of the family, asked her cousin for the recipe. She was told that these lovely little cookies were traditionally served at weddings there in their small Italian village. The recipe itself is quite simple, however, it is the method in which you assemble the cookies that makes these so unique. My great aunt adapted the original filling. In Italy, the peach cookies were filled with cream custard held together at the crease by dark chocolate. Because she needed to make her's in advance, she changes the filling to peach preserves. If you use the traditional cream for the filling, the cookies must be made and eaten THAT DAY. I've left the recipe in her original words. The number of cookies this makes is an ESTIMATE! Will update after I speak to my great-aunt.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Heat oven to 350°.
    2. 2
      Lightly grease cookie sheets.
    3. 3
      Mix together sugar, eggs and oil. Add flour and baking powder.
    4. 4
      Form 1" balls (cookies should be "flat" on the bottom where they rest on the cookie sheet) and bake about 10-15 minutes (until lightly browned on the bottom).
    5. 5
      While still warm, take a small pointed knife and scoop out a pocket on the flat side of each cookie.
    6. 6
      Fill with preserves & spread a small amount on the flat sides as you join 2 cookies together to form the peach.
    7. 7
      Color the brandy with a little food coloring & dip the peaches to give them a "blush".
    8. 8
      Then roll the peach in granulated sugar.
    9. 9
      You may garnish with artificial leaves for presentation.
    10. 10
      **Variation--if you have the time to make these lovely cookies on the actual day that they will be eaten, you may fill the pockets with pastry cream, and then seal the two halves together with melted dark chocolate!

      I absolutely love these cookies, they are such a beautiful presentation. There is actually a slightly different version of this recipe, its from Austria. Instead of filling the cookies with peach preserves you make a chocolate cream filling, with walnuts, cookie crumbs, and peach brandy. I like this version better only because I%u2019m not a fan of peach preserves. There a big hit at my family functions, I always make these beautiful cookies for Easter. LOVE THEM :)

      I have made these many times and get great reviews all the time. They have just the right balance of flavor with the barandy and pastry cream that I use when I make them.
