What’s Cooking in Gail’s Kitchen? Food Junkie Favorites: Amaretto Strawberries Romanoff! Have you ever tasted vanilla extract? Well, amaretto tastes nothing like that. It has a smooth sweet hint of almonds with just a smidgen of apricot undertones. When you fold it into Greek yogurt, it transforms a dish of fresh strawberries into a light and elegant dessert you could easily find on a gourmet restaurant menu.
AMARETTO STRAWBERRIES ROMANOFF
1 quart fresh strawberries
1/2 cup Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1-2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
Fresh mint sprig
Wash strawberries; pat dry. In a small bowl gently stir yogurt and brown sugar until no lumps remain. Fold in amaretto liqueur. Transfer to a decorative dish, garnish with fresh mint, and place on a serving platter. Arrange strawberries around sauce. Serve with frilled toothpicks.
