peaches with amaretti cookies, the best dress up

peaches, prunus persica, from the latin meaning persian apple, originated in china around 1000 bc, and not until the 19th century became commercially available in the usa.  in chinese culture the peach tree is considered the tree of life and a symbol of immortality and unity.  although a summer fruit in north america, global commerce has made it possible to enjoy peaches during the winter months, making this a peachy luvFAB recipe for all seasons.  yummy, life’s a peach, life is good for thebestdressup now!
