Raspberry Shortcake

Can you tell that I am getting in the summer mood with all these fresh fruits. This was an amazing fruit cup the other morning, but made a great dessert for myself after dinner as well. Feels like summer!

Raspberry Shortcake – Serves 4Raspberry Shortcake

12 oz. fresh raspberries, 1/2 c sugar, 1/4 C amaretto, 12 slices (1/4″ thick) challah bread cut in chunks, and whipped cream.

In a saucepan, stir berries, (save some for garnish if you want it to look prettier), sugar and 2 TB amaretto over med. heat. Bring to a simmer. Stir in remaining 2 TB amaretto. Remove from heat. Spoon a TB of warm berry mixture into each cup. Top with a layer of bread cubes. Repeat layering 2 more times. Top with remaining sauce. Gently press down and refrigerate for about a half hour for the bread to soak up all the goodness. Dollop with whipped cream and garnish with more berries. Yum!
