- Peach-shaped, buttery and soft sandwich cookies filled with melted dark chocolate, infused in maraschino and rolled in sugar
And here is my first bite … Throw-your-head-back-and-close-your-eyes kind of good!
Now, let’s not get confused by the name. These 🍑cookies don’t actually have any sort of peach in them. The name just comes from their cute shape and color.
The traditional recipe asks for the sandwich cookies to be dipped in maraschino (or alchermes), which gives them their pink color and aromatic flavor.
If like me, you need a kids’ friendly dessert, you can substitute the liqueur with non-alcoholic maraschino cherry juice, or other fruit juice (maybe with the addition of pink food coloring). The taste will not be exactly the same, but it’s a great alternative.
