This sauce is so YUMMY!! It was originally a topping for bread pudding(check out my recipe for that too!) but this is too delicious to hide in another recipe. I use it to top so many thing but my favorite is for ice cream! I also usually double the recipe.


  1. Melt butter in a sauce pan.
  2. Whisk in powdered sugar, then amaretto!
  3. Enjoy!

This turned out great! I wanted to mimic an amaretto sauce I had at a B&B which had a creamy texture. This recipe seems more glaze-like than sauce-like but still worked wonderfully for my purposes. Since I didn't have amaretto, I substituted the same amount of water with about 2 tsp almond extract instead. I used the sauce to drizzle over mixed berries (raspberries, blackberries and hulled strawberries ) and got rave reviews even from non-fruity folks.
