Here’s a terrifically easy dessert just in time for Valentine’s Day. Central Market has fresh berries to use, though frozen (thawed and drained) will work. Serve in glass parfait glasses or bowls with champagne.
Roasted Berries with Biscotti
1 quart (4 cups) mixed ripe berries
4 tsp. rosemary, chopped
3-4 Tbsp. honey
4 oz. butter
1 cup dark rum
1 vanilla bean
1 tsp. salt
2 cups whipped cream
8 pieces of biscotti
- Quickly heat honey, rosemary, butter, scraped vanilla bean, salt and rum until combined, stirring frequently.
- In a large bowl, toss berries and honey mix. Pour mixture into a glass baking dish and roast in a 400-degree oven for 10–15 minutes.
- While still warm, spoon into individual bowls or serving piece. Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle with crushed amaretti. Use mint or rosemary as additional garnish.
