Grilled Pesche ( Peaches ) Ameretti

This is a recipe from the Piemonte Northen Italy area.

4- ripe peaches, sliced in half and pitted
1/2 - cup Amaretti  cookie crumbles
1 -  tablespoon cocoa powder
1/3 up peach pulp from the peaches
1- teaspoon sugar
Beautiful California Peaches

I used my  Cuisinart Griddler to grill my peaches, but a gas grill or charcoal grill will work fine also!
Cut the peaches in half and remove the pit, take out  1/3 cup of  pulp  from the  peaches and smash with a fork in  a med. sized bowl.
Then add the Ameretti cookie crumbles* notes below ,cocoa, sugar and mix till moist,enough to form 4 balls, then set aside.

Get your grill  hot and then place the peaches cut side down for about 5 min. Then using tongs turn the peaches over and add the filling to each peach and grill for about  5 min. longer. Remove from heat and place on a serving plate and serve warm.

* notes
Ameretti cookies  can be found in most International  markets
