Ingredients

Shortcakes

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons amaretto
  • 2 medium peaches, peeled, cut up
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 6 sponge shortcake cups
  • Sliced almonds, if desired

Amaretto Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon amaretto

Steps

  • 1
    In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in 1/4 cup brown sugar. Cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in 2 tablespoons amaretto and the peaches. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peaches are coated with sugar mixture. Cool 10 minutes. Gently stir in raspberries.
  • 2
    In chilled medium bowl, beat Amaretto Whipped Cream ingredients with electric mixer on high speed until stiff.
  • 3
    Top each shortcake cup with peach-raspberry mixture and whipped cream. Sprinkle with almonds.

  • If you're taking these shortcakes to a picnic, omit the Amaretto Whipped Cream and take along a can of whipped cream topping instead.
  • 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.
