Strawberry Dessert
When I have friends or family coming over for dinner, I love to prepare all day. Usually I have plans that make me wonder ‘how will I fix that, in this amount of time??!’ Mission impossible.. Oh yeah I’ve served my guests dinner pretty late a few times. Big excuse to the ones who are used to dine around six. At my house, we do it the Italian way ;). It was not a strange thing starting dinner around 22:30 when I lived in Milano years ago. Is that a good excuse?!

But of course I want to think about the wishes of my guest and don’t want to starve them till 22:30 all the time. So, I choose to take time for a few courses and dessert: ‘easy peasy strawberry’. This dessert is done in a snap! I’ve been making it for years.

I just love this strawberry amaretto cream dessert! The recipe is só simple, while everyone is wondering: “HOW do you make it…?!” Only some sour cream with amaretto!!! YAY. That’s it!

Hmmm this is my secret. And I share it right now…

Strawberry Amaretto Cream

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Category: Sweets


  • 45 gr. almonds
  • 1 Container strawberries
  • 200 ml. sour cream
  • 1/2 cup Amaretto (or more to taste)


  1. Toast the almonds in a dry frying pan. Clean the strawberries and keep four separate (leave the crowns). Remove the crowns of the remaining strawberries and cut them in half. Divide the strawberries on four plates and sprinkle with sugar (optional - I don't think it's necessary).
  2. Stir the amaretto in the sour cream (I usually use a lot more). Spread the cream over the strawberries and garnish with roasted almonds. Cut the remaining strawberries in half lengthwise, below the crown. Loosen the two share a quarter turn from each other and put the strawberries on top of the last dessert.
  3. Very nice with Italian almond cookies!
