Stuffed and baked peaches.....



Each week, a friend and I lunch together. One week at her house and one at mine. We both have fun trying out recipes on each other. I decided to create this dessert and wanted to note it in my blog as it turned out really well. My stuffed and baked peaches...

I crushed about 8 speculoos (Belgian version of our Dutch windmill cookies) cookies in a bowl then sprinkled a heaping tablespoon of cocoa powder over the large cookie crumbs.


Rub in two knobs of butter with fingers. You want a large crumble look. 


I had a jar of whole peaches but you can use halves as well. Fresh peaches would work too but you may need to bake them longer. Stuff the hole of the peach well with the crumble filling. Place them in a baking dish and sprinkle over some honey. Bake in an 180C/375F oven for about 25 minutes. 


Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and chocolate mocca beans or chocolate flakes. 

Note: I had so much filling that I was able to make 12 peaches total. You can make the filling and keep in a jar in the fridge to use as you need it. 


Eet smakelijk!
