Dessert - Lactose intolerant safe (read bottom note)

5 ripe peaches
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp sugar
4 oz mixed berries
3 oz almonds, chopped
4 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
5 tbsp powdered sugar
2 tbsp aromatic liqueur (Amaretto is the best)
4 ladyfingers, chopped
4 amaretti (cookies) crumbled
Butter, salt

Wash and dry the peaches, divide 4 of them in half and remove the pits, scoop out a little bit of pulp in order to "make room" for the stuffing; peel and chop the 5th peach along with the pulp removed from the other ones.

Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of sugar the bottom of a non-stick skillet, place it over medium heat and when it turns into golden brown, add the halved peaches cutside down. After 1 minute flip them and caramelize the other side for one more minute. Remove them from the skillet and sautee, in it, the chopped pulp for 2 minutes.

In another skillet melt a dollop of butter with the remaining sugar (not the powdered one), add the berries, 3 tbsp water and cook for 3 minutes; crush with a fork and set aside.

In a bowl, mix the chopped peach with almonds, cocoa powder, ladyfingers, amaretti, powdered sugar, liqueur and a pinch of salt.

Distribute the stuffing over half peach and top with another half. Garnish with the mixed berries sauce.

This recipe serves 4.

- You can also serve these peaches halved (not topped by the other half) and grilled for 5 minutes in the oven.
- If there are kids, use milk instead of liqueur.
- Lactose intolerants can use one extra tbsp of water instead of butter and fruit syrup instead of milk, in the stuffing, if there are any kids.
