Baked peaches may be served warm or cold. You can purchase ground almonds in the bulk section of most natural food stores, or you can grind them yourself in a food processor.

Serves: 4


  • 4 ripe peaches
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 8 Tbsp. soft butter
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup ground almonds
  • ¼ cup dry bread crumbs
  • 1 cup white grape juice


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a baking dish large enough to fit 8 peach halves snugly in one layer.
  • Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Place peach halves, cut sides facing up, in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the lemon juice over the peaches. Set aside.
  • In a bowl, cream the sugar and butter together until the mixture is fluffy. Beat in the egg; stir in the almonds and bread crumbs.
  • Place a scoop of the almond filling on top of each peach. Pour the white grape juice around the peaches, but not directly on them.
  • Bake peaches uncovered for 45 minutes, basting with the liquid at the bottom of the pan.
