Spread the love

Ingredients:

For the Cookies:
3 eggs at room temperature
170 gr sugar
100 gr soft butter at room temperature
4 tablespoons milk
500 gr flour 00
1 sachet of baking powder
For the Custard Cream:
3 yolks
90 gr sugar
60 gr corn starch or potato starch
500 ml whole milk
vanilla seeds to scent
To Decorate
50 ml liqueur Alchermes
granulated sugar
leaves to decorate


Instructions:

  • Start by preparing the Custard. I used the fast recipe, the one with less yolks. The consistency must be dense.
  • Once ready, pour the cream into a bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and let it cool. You must use Cold.
  • Meanwhile prepare the dough for soft cookies. I used the Planetarium but you can use simple whips or do everything by hand.
  • Put the eggs and sugar in the bowl of the food processor. Whisk for a couple of minutes until you get a light and foamy mixture.
  • Add the soft butter and milk and continue to work. Finally, add the sifted flour together with the yeast (if you use the mixer replace the whisk with hook K).
  • You will get a soft and slightly sticky dough. Pour the dough on the lightly floured pastry board and knead a little to make it less sticky.
  • Divide the dough into 25-gram portions. Make balls and then press them like buttons.
  • This trick is essential to make peaches from the Perfect shape! Bake in a STATIC oven preheated to 180 s. for about 15 minutes.
  • Cookies should remain whitish on the surface and slightly amber below.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool.
  • With the tip of a sharp knife dig the cookies inside.
  • Pour the Alchermes into a saucer and soak the outside of the biscuits.
  • Put the custard in a pastry bag with a smooth nozzle and fill the biscuits.
  • Add 2 halves to form a peach by spilling some cream
  • Roll the fake peach in the granulated sugar.
  • Place the alchermes peaches on a saucer and decorate them with leaflets (real or fake).
  • I used tangerine leaves around my house!
  • Keep the sweet peaches in the fridge and Tiratele out half an hour before consuming them.
  • CONSERVATION
  • The sweet peaches, once ready, should be consumed within 1-2 days. If you want, however, you can Store Cookies and Stuff the fake peaches at the moment (with Cream and Alchermes), when you feel like it!
