I hate everything about camping – the bugs, the hard ground, flies on my food, the heat – you get the idea. So if I have a choice between roughing it and a hotel (with room service only – please, I’m begging you!!!), I will always pick the hotel. Always.
About a zillion years ago, my sister and I took our families up to Colorado to visit our spritely Grandma. I stayed in a hotel and yes, they had room service. I was so very excited. I ordered a cheesecake with amaretto sauce.
I was a little skeptical at first, because the sauce was clear, save for the few specks of what appeared to be cinnamon. It was amazing!!!
Literally, the first thing I did when I got home was recreate this sauce. It’s sticky, sweet, with a hint of cinnamon, and it’s perfect on top of cheesecake.
Amaretto Sauce Adapted from Anyone Can Cook
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup amaretto
1 pinch cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
In a medium pot, stir together the first four ingredients. Cook just until boiling, then take it off the heat, and stir in the vanilla. Serve warm.
