Strawberry-Orange Syrup

For today's pancake installment, I made Buttermilk Pancakes with a twist. I had forgotten to buy syrup on last week's shopping trip, so I decided to make do with on-hand ingredients. Sliced strawberries were combined with a little sugar, some orange juice, and a splash of amaretto for a yummy pancake topping. Enjoy!

Strawberry-Orange Syrup
1 Tbsp. butter
1 pint strawberries, sliced or cut into quarters
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup orange juice
1 Tbsp. amaretto

1. Melt butter in a skillet; stir in strawberries and sugar. Cook until sugar dissolves. Stir in orange juice and amaretto, and cook until slightly thickened. Serve over pancakes.
