Baked Peaches

Baked Peaches stuffed with amaretti cookie crumbs and topped with a mascarpone cream are a delicious recipe that is so easy to do and it sure to impress.

The flavors here are just incredible, especially during peach season.  I hope you will try it. I got these delicious and juicy peaches at my favorite local supermarket GIUNTAS MEATS FARMS
