Nectarine cookie crisp
SmartPoints® value per serving
Sliced nectarines are baked to perfection beneath an amaretti cookie topping. The majority of the the cook time for this recipe is hands-off: The nectarines bake for about 45 minutes, giving you plenty of time to do whatever else you need to do. Make this effortless dessert even better with a scoop of light vanilla ice cream. You can also use any stone fruit, so feel free to experiment with whatever you have on hand: Peaches, apricots, plumcots and plums all work well.

You can use light butter in this recipe but we like the taste of regular butter better and decided that for 1 1/2 teaspoons of butter per serving, it's worth using the real thing.
