8 servings

Puree the almond mixture ahead of time if you like, but wait until the last minute to cut and stuff the peaches, or they’ll turn brown.

  • 4 peaches, halved and pitted
  • 6 oz. almond paste (about ½ cup)
  • 3 Tablespoons hot water
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1½ teaspoons cold butter, cut into 8 pieces

  1. Heat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Put a rack on a baking sheet and then put the peaches on the rack, skin-side down.
  3. In a food processor, puree the almond paste, water, and lemon juice.
  4. Spoon the almond mixture into the centers of the peaches. Top each mound of almond paste with a piece of the butter.
  5. Bake in the lower third of the oven until the peaches are tender and the almond paste is golden brown, about 25 minutes.

Serve warm.
