How to use up leftover amaretti biscuits

  • Baked pears with amaretti crumble
    Heat the oven to 190°C/170°C fan/gas 5. Halve and core 4 pears and arrange, cut-side up, in a buttered baking dish. Dot the pears with butter, then sprinkle with caster sugar and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Bake for 40-50 minutes until soft. Meanwhile, whizz 50g amaretti biscuits in a food processor with 1 tbsp each flour, butter and light brown sugar until the mixture has the texture of large breadcrumbs. Scatter the amaretti mixture over the pears and serve with ice cream.
  • Amaretto cream
    Crush about 15 amaretti biscuits in a medium bowl to the texture of chunky breadcrumbs and divide among 4 pudding glasses. Pour over 1/2 tbsp amaretto liqueur and top with dollops of readymade custard, the top with dollops of cream whipped together with a little icing sugar and lemon zest.
