For the Cookies:

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


  • 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.
  • 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!
