Simplify
If you're taking these shortcakes to a picnic, omit the Amaretto Whipped Cream and take along a can of whipped cream topping instead.
Substitution
Amaretto is an almond-flavored liqueur. If you don't have any on hand, you can use 1 teaspoon almond extract in the fruit mixture and 1/4 teaspoon almond extract in the whipped cream.
