Stuffed Peaches Recipe

There are so many ways to eat peaches, from enjoying them fresh off the tree to adding them to your favorite salads and desserts but this recipe for stuffed peaches is by far my favorite way of serving peaches! In summer time they’re such a blessing on a hot day, sweet but not too much, juicy and refreshing, especially if you keep yours in the fridge before serving.

There aren’t many things you can do to a peach to make it taste better but this stuffed peaches recipe is definitely one mouthwatering way! These treats are sweet with just a touch of spicy, juicy, creamy and just a little bit crunchy. These stuffed peaches would make the perfect finish to a meal but they work just as great as snacks, with a dollop of mascarpone or whipped cream.

This peach recipe is my personal heaven! I’ve been digging these so much I had to make the recipe twice (talk about being greedy), to have Ellie enjoy a couple. Best thing about these is that they are just as divine served warm or cold, from the fridge which is a better option on hot days.

How to make stuffed peaches

Stuffed Peaches Recipe


  • large ripe but firm peaches: Peaches are the star ingredient in this recipe. Choose peaches that are ripe but still slightly firm so they hold their shape when stuffed and baked.
  • amaretti biscuits: These Italian almond-flavored cookies add a delicious crunch and sweetness to the filling of the stuffed peaches.
  • chopped almonds: The addition of chopped almonds adds a nutty flavor and texture to the filling.
  • pumpkin seeds: Pumpkin seeds add a subtle crunch and earthy flavor to the filling.
  • Milk chocolate:  Adding some chopped milk chocolate to the filling gives a creamy and indulgent element to the stuffed peaches.
  • 1 egg, beaten: The beaten egg is used as a binder for the filling, helping it hold together while baking.
  • honey: Honey adds a natural sweetness to the filling and complements the flavors of the peaches and other ingredients.
  • icing sugar for dusting: Icing sugar is used to dust the stuffed peaches before serving, adding a touch of sweetness and a visually appealing finish.
  • ground cinnamon for dusting: Cinnamon adds a warm and spicy note to the stuffed peaches, enhancing the overall flavor profile.
  • mascarpone or whipped cream – optional, for serving the baked peaches: These creamy toppings are the perfect accompaniment to the stuffed peaches, adding a smooth and rich element to each bite.


  • Pre heat the oven at 400 F
  • Prepare a baking sheet by lining with baking paper
  • Halve and remove the pits from each peach
  • Dig out a little flesh from the center of each half
  • Tip amaretti cookies, chocolate, almonds and pumpkin seeds into a food processor and pulse until mixture is like coarse gravel
  • Add the peach flesh, egg and honey and process for a couple of seconds
  • Spoon the stuffing into each peach half
  • Arrange all peaches in the baking dish lined with parchment paper and bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the stuffing is nicely browned.
  • Serve warm or cold with a dusting of sugar and cinnamon or a dollop of mascarpone, cream cheese or whipped cream


  • You can use any type of nut or seed in the filling, such as walnuts, hazelnuts, or sunflower seeds, for added flavor and texture.
  • For a healthier option, you can substitute honey with maple syrup or agave nectar.
  • If you don’t have a food processor, you can crush the amaretti biscuits and chop the nuts and chocolate by hand before mixing them with the peaches.
  • Add butter to the filling for a richer and creamier texture.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar before baking to create a caramelized topping.
  • To make this recipe even more indulgent, you can top each stuffed peach with a scoop of vanilla ice cream before serving.

Recipe variations

  • For a gluten-free option, you can use gluten-free amaretti biscuits or substitute them with almond flour.
  • To add a hint of citrus flavor, you can grate some lemon or orange zest into the filling mixture before processing.
  • For an adult twist, you can soak the peaches in a little rum or amaretto before stuffing and baking them for an extra boozy kick.
