  • 1 lb strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 3 tablespoons amaretto liqueur, or orange liqueur
  • 2/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup unsalted pistachios, chopped, optional
  • 24 amaretti cookies, crushed
  • miniature semisweet chocolate chips, optional


In a medium bowl, combine the strawberries and amaretto. Cover and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight.


In a large bowl, whip the cream with the confectioner's sugar until soft peaks form (tips curl). In a medium bowl, stir half of the whipped cream into the ricotta to lighten it. Gently fold in the remaining whipped cream and cinnamon. Fold the pistachios into cream mixture.


Place a layer of crushed amaretti cookies in each of 4 parfait glasses. Top each with a layer of strawberry slices and then cannoli cream. Repeat layering. If desired, top with miniature chocolate chips.
