Mini muffins with peach and "amaretti"

Here the  weather already started being a bit cold, or maybe it's because I am a bit like a reptile and feel cold as soon as the sun disappears... well, what matters is that I suddenly started feel like turning on the oven and baking something fun

Mini muffins with peach and amaretti

Ingredients (for about 50 mini muffins - or 10 regular muffins):
230g corn starch
25g amaretti (italian almond flavored buiscuits) + 3-4 more amaretti for the bottom of the muffins
2 eggs
100g sugar (I use 70g white sugar and 30g brown sugar)
120g butter (at room temperature)
100g (yes, grams) milk
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 big peach, or 2 small ones (mine weighted some 300g)
a pinch of salt

wash the peach and cut it into small dices. Crush the amaretti in a mortar (don't grind them so much that they become powder, make sure you leave some grains; of course it is also a matter of personal taste).
In a bowl, mix with your hands the corn starch with the butter and the crushed amaretti. Add sugar, bakind powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs with the milk, and pour them on the first bowl with the amaretti compound. Mix well; finally, add in the diced peach, mix a bit more with a spoon, and you are ready to fill your muffin molds. Before pouring the compound in, crush 3-4 more amaretti (this time ground to powder) and put a bit in the bottom of each mold... it will make it more tasty!

Bake at 170ºC for 20 minutes (well, you should check with your own oven!).
Twenty minutes and...enjoy!!
