Crown broiled peaches with pillows of meringue and a bit of honeyed crunch.


  • 2 ripe peaches, halved and pitted
  • 3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon sugar, divided
  • 1 large egg white
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped sesame candy or crushed amaretti


Preheat broiler.
Put peaches, cut side up, on a baking sheet and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar (total). Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat until tops begin to brown, 2 to 4 minutes.
Beat egg white with a pinch of salt in a deep bowl using an electric mixer at medium-high speed until foamy. Gradually add remaining 3 tablespoon sugar, beating until white holds stiff, glossy peaks. Fold in sesame candy.
Place a dollop of meringue on each peach half and broil 30 seconds. Turn off broiler and leave peaches in oven just until tips of meringue are browned, 30 seconds to 1 minute (watch carefully).
cooks' note:The egg white in this recipe is not fully cooked.
