3/4 cup sugar

3 1/2 Tb cornstarch

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

1/4 cup amaretto (optional)

1/4 cup peach preserves

10 large ripe peaches (3 lbs), peeled & sliced

1/3 (20 oz pkg) package refrigerated sliceable sugar cookie dough

1 Tb all-purpose flour, divided

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large saucepan; stir well. Stir in amaretto, if

Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture is thickened and bubbly.

Spoon peach mixture into a lightly greased 11x7x1 1/2-inch baking dish.
