Sliced nectarines are baked to perfection beneath an amaretti cookie topping. Make this dessert even better with a scoop of light vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

nectarine(s)

7 item(s), medium, thinly sliced (about 8 to 10 slices per nectarine)

liqueur

½ fl oz, almond flavor suggested, or 1 floz

amaretti cookie(s)

7 item(s), processed into fine crumbs

regular butter

5 Tbsp, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Place nectarines in an ungreased round baking dish; toss with liqueur. Spread nectarines into an even layer and top with cookie crumbs; drizzle melted butter over top.
  3. Bake until fruit bubbles, about 45 to 50 minutes. Allow to cool; serve either warm or cold. Yields 1 slice per serving.

Notes

You can use any stone fruit in this dessert: Peaches, apricots, plucots 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.
