Strawberries, check. Amaretto, check. Sour cream?

I love strawberry season

One of my wife’s coworkers made this years back at a party. Let’s just say we monopolized the dip bowl at that gathering.

Strawberry dip

  • 8 ounces sour cream, we recommend light it’s tangier
  • 2 tbsp Amaretto
  • 1 tbsp powdered sugar
  • 2-4 Amaretti cookies, optional

Whisk together liquor and sugar. Stir in sour cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Before serving crumble the amaretti cookies on top. Serve with strawberries or mixed fruit.

    This is a good night snack for me, a better replacement for popcorns while watching movies.

  13. I’m off to buy strawberries!

  14. As usual, this picture calls me to take action. This looks so delicious.

  15. Always something fresh and new. Y’all are so versatile. “Tangy” is how you describe lite sour cream…I never cared for it…but with fruit, sounds logical.

  16. Linda says:

  17. Ohhh yum!!! This is a must-try for me!! :-)))

  28. Young Wifey says:

    Looks delicious and so easy! I’d probably use crème fraîche to whip this up…

  29. Karen says:

    Oh yum – I’m a huge fan of amaretto and amaretti. Have you guys tried this with ricotta instead of sour cream?

  30. Seriously… everytime I click onto your blog there is something even more awesome on offer…lol… amaretto??? LOVE IT… did not know you could also make a dip out of it- but guess what? I will!…. will report back… ;o)

  31. This looks delicious! I’m definitely going to make it. And it meets my 5 ingredients or less rule. Bonus! =)

  32. Totally in the vein of simple and great ideas! Can’t wait to try it.

  33. Ooo yes. Now that would work. I’ve done a similar thing with vanilla mascarpone instead of the sour cream, but not in that kind of presentation. Will have to remember this one.

  34. Yuri says:

    Curious about this dip, a healthier alternative to whipped cream 🙂

  35. SoJo says:

    OMG, Yum! Besides the spirits *ahem – but seriously who doesn’t want spirits*, even the sous chefs could share this, and that would make them very very happy.

  36. myblogject says:

    I made this. It was amazing. Then I brought it to a group where about 2/3 of the women were pregnant and wouldn’t touch it. More for me!
