Some More Ideas
Baked raisin-stuffed apples: Instead of the peaches, substitute 5 large red-skinned baking apples (about 2 1/2
pounds), such as Cortland, Jonathan, or Rome Beauty. Cut 4 of the apples in half (do not peel) and core. Instead of the amaretti filling, use the remaining peeled, cored, chopped apple, 1 cup coconut macaroon crumbs, 1/2 cup golden raisins, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon light rum, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, and 1 large egg white.
Baked cherry-stuffed pears: Substitute 5 large ripe pears for the peaches and 3/4 cup dried cherries for the apricots.
Baked cranberry-stuffed nectarines: Use 5 large ripe nectarines for the peaches and 3/4 cup dried cranberries for the apricots. Use 1/3 cup chopped pistachios in place of the almonds.
- Dried apricots are a good source of potassium, which is needed to maintain normal blood pressure.
- Amaretti cookies are a type of macaroon made with whipped egg whites and almond paste. Because they are made with a meringue, they are lower in fat than many other cookies.
