Delicious with a big D, I scaled it back to 3 serves and my peaches were large but at the peak of the season. I couldn't get amaretti biscuits so was going to use shortbread and mix a little coconut in them but the DH ate them unknown to me so crumbed some plain biscuits but then discovered no coconut so went with it. Served with some mascarpone and I think we all went to heaven. Just sorry our stone fruit season is so short and will be unable to enjoy this more. Thank you UmmBinat, made for Make My Recipe - Edition 10.
