Sauteed Stracchino With Pinenuts, Cinnamon And Amaretto

Courses: Starters and appetizers
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

12 oz 340gStracchino cheese - well refrigerated
1/2 cup 118mlPine nuts - spread on a plate
4 tablespoons 60mlUnsalted butter - divided
1 teaspoon 5mlCinnamon
6 oz 170gAmaretto liqueur

Recipe Instructions

Ask your cheese monger to cut the cheese into a 4- by 4-inch square roughly 3 inches high. Cut this block into 4 equal pieces and gently press the cut side of the cheese onto the plate of pine nuts, creating a crust on one side. Continue with each piece until all four are crusted on one side.

Heat a 10-inch nonstick pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon butter and saute 2 pieces of cheese, nut crusted-side down. Cook until lightly brown, about 2 minutes. Remove and place each piece on a separate plate, nut crusted-side up. Repeat this procedure with the remaining 2 pieces. Remove any nuts that fell off the cheese.

Add the cinnamon, 2 remaining tablespoons butter and Amaretto. Turn the heat to high and reduce to about 4 tablespoons. Remove from heat and spoon 1 tablespoon of liqueur over each piece of cheese. Serve immediately.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
