Peachy Parfait

This can be served frozen or chilled. Im serving it with a BRIGHT red Raspberry sorbet..

if i was serving it chilled i would make a nice peach chutney ENJOY!!

Ingredients
32 amaretti biscuits
4 Peaches, skinned and stones removed
4 egg whites
100ml almond-flavoured liqueur, such as Amaretto
300ml double cream
2 peach, sliced, to decorate


Method
1. Press the crumbled amaretti firmly into the base of a 10cm flan ring.

2. Blend the peaches in a jug blender to a smooth puree.

3. Whisk egg whites until soft peaks form.

4. In a separate bowl, add the amaretto to cream then whisk until stiff peaks form.

5. Fold the peach puree into the amaretto cream.

6. Gently fold the whisked egg whites into the peach mixture.

7. Spoon the peach mixture over the amaretto base.

8. Chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours or freeze for 2-3 hours. If frozen, remove from the freezer 20 minutes before serving to allow to thaw slightly.

9. Decorate with peach slices or with the above toppings mentioned

ENJOY!

Now Robert, amaretti would probably make a good cheesecake base and/or flavouring for the cheese mix too! Hop to it.... :) :)

They are little Italian almond biscuits and the liqueur Amaretto has a similar taste.
