Wash and slice the peaches. Cut them in half and remove the stone.
In a bowl mix the egg yolks, the brown sugar, the crushed amaretti and the cocoa.
Fill the peaches with the amaretti mixture, sprinkle them with almond's flakes and line them up on a baking sheet. Pour a glass of water on the baking sheet to prevent the peaches from drying out. Bake for 30 minutes at 180C or 350F.
Serve warm with a sprinkle of confectionery sugar.
