The farmers market has been flooded with fresh locally grown peaches these last few weeks and I certainly have been enjoying them. This weekend I got a few too many of them to finish in the week simply by snacking on them and it was about time that I got down to making something with them. Crisps, crumbles and cobblers are by far one of the easiest ways too use a lot of fruit and this crumble has been on my mind for a while. The main idea of this crumble was to use amaretti cookie crumbs to make the topping and to hit the peach filling with a splash of amaretto. To continue building on the almond flavours I added some slivered almonds to the topping as well. This crumble was as easy as cutting up some peaches, mixing the topping and baking it and the rewards of so little effort are amazing! The amaretti crumble topping was phenomenal and it went really well with the peaches. Of course, I absolutely had to serve the peach crumble with a scoop of melting vanilla ice cream.
Peach Amaretti Crumble
- 2 pounds ripe peaches (pealed, stoned and sliced)
- 1/4 cup amaretto
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 2/3 cup flour
- 2/3 cup amaretti cookies (crushed)
- 1/4 cup almonds (sliced)
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup butter (melted)
- Toss the peaches in the amaretto and cornstarch and place them in an 8×8 inch baking dish.
- Mix the flour, amaretti cookies, almonds, brown sugar and butter and pour onto the peaches.
- Bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until it is bubbling and the top is golden brown, about 30-45 minutes.

So may peaches this time of the year and so little time. I'd make time for this simple and tasty dessert Kevin.

peach crumble with ice cream, delicious!
Amaretto is a new flavor love of mine…this looks like the perfect dessert.
I brought home a bag of peaches from the market as well and am looking forward to dessert this evening. Using amaretti cookies in the topping is a delicious idea.

Peach and ammeretti?! Yes please!! This looks great, my husband is a cobbler guy so he would LOVE this.
Looks like everyone is posting their peach recipes today – that time of year I guess!

I only had my first encounter with Amaretti biscuits a while ago, also combined with peaches…I was delicious as I am sure your crumble was too!!
Crushed cookies sound like an excellent topping! Lovely peach crumble, although peaches never last that long in my house.

Can you hear the knock on the door?
I am by the door, holding up an empty bowl. I would love some of your awesome and delicious crumble ♥
Oh – what a natural. I am kicking myself for never doing this. Peaches and amaretti yes. Now, I wonder if I can wait until Friday's Farmer's market to do this…
Nice combination – I can see a cheesecake recipe in here too.
Ohhhh, I haven't had a good crumble in AGES! This looks divine and I can almost taste those warm peaches.
It looks perfect!

I like the idea of amaretti cookies over something like oats. The liquer is awesome too. I love almonds and peaches together.
The Duo Dishes says
Any crumble and ice cream go together like a married couple. Perfect.
If there's anything to make a peach crumble better, it's got to be booze!
Love this. Can be in the oven in under 10 minutes and only requires one bowl!

Seriously?! This sounds amazing. And peaches in WA are fantastic right now. I now know what our dessert is for our dinner party tomorrow night! Thanks Kev!

Is there any way to make it lighter? No butter and less Sugar, for example? I love the recipe, I'd like to eat it often so I need a lighter version. Thanks
daniela: You could try replacing the butter with oil or maybe even honey in the crumble topping to make it lighter.
