That is not cool whip

That is not cool whip

This is a really simple dessert that works well with really ripe or not so ripe nectarines.

Nectarines with Honey

  • 5 nectarines sliced thick
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp amaretto
  • 1 cup heavy cream

Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add nectarines and saute until they begin to soften. Add honey and continue to saute until browned on edges. Meanwhile mix amaretto and cream in a bowl and whip until stiff peaks form. Layer whipped cream, then fruit, then cream and then fruit into glasses and refrigerate for one hour before serving.

    Looks fantastic…I finished your recipe for candied figs and they are out of this world.

  3. Question: I do not own amaretto and I have no excess moneys with which to buy some at the moment. But I DO have a decent brandy, heavy whipping cream, and the will to make the two into whipped cream. Would it work?
