BERRIES & CRÈME
Fruit is such an easy dessert and there are so many ways to make it fun and exciting.
This sweet dish is a dessert that I eat most often. Homemade whipped cream is the best.
Whipped cream that you can buy in the store just does not compare.
1 pint strawberries, raspberries, or blueberries
1 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon amaretto liqueur
To make the cream, place the heavy cream into a medium bowl and beat with an electric mixer until soft peaks form. Gently add the sugar and almond extract to the cream and beat until combined. Pour the amaretto over the berries and toss to combine.
Divide the berries into individual serving bowls. Top with the whipped cream mixture.
