Advice, variants and ideas

If you wish, you can also replace the amaretti with other biscuits, such as Pavesini or ladyfingers , obtaining a more neutral and less aromatic taste. You can also add dried fruit, such as almonds for example, or alcohol to give the filling an even more intense flavour.

Another delicious variant is with ricotta cheese : put about 5 or 6 tablespoons and mix them well with the other ingredients and you will get creamy and delicious peaches.

Finally, some advice for serving them: pour a little juice released during cooking, or, for a real sin of gluttony, serve them with a splash of whipped cream !
