Strawberry Amaretto Pastries

These Strawberry Amaretto Pastries and light pillows filled with sweet, succulent strawberries. Pure heaven.

These Strawberry Amaretto Pastries combine two of my favorite flavors — strawberry and almond.

I can’t wait for the strawberry season this year.  There is nothing like fresh strawberries still warm from the vine just bursting with flavor.   I’m planning on picking a whole bunch so I can make lots of strawberry jam.

I’ll also be making these heavenly pastries.  They are so elegant and delicious and a great alternative to strawberry shortcake.

This recipe looks incredibly decadent and fancy, yet it’s remarkably easy to make. There are toasted almonds baked into the light and puffy pastries and a light wisp of almond flavoring in the cream.  It goes so nicely with the sweet berries.

This dish is simple enough to make and is impressive enough to serve guests!
