Apple poached in red wine with Amaretti biscuit cream

Amaretti di Saronno is the most famous variety of these crunchy, almond-flavoured macaroons, and are traditional to the town of that name in the northern Italian commune of Lombardy and date back to the eighteenth century. In this recipe their crunchy crumbs make a fantastic contrast to soft, creamy mascarpone and lightly spiced poached apples. Delizioso!
