Sauteed Cheese with Pine Nuts, Cinnamon & Amaretto

12 ounces Stracchino or Taleggio cheese, well refrigerated
1/2 cup pine nuts, spread out on a plate
2 T plus 2 teaspoons unsalted butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup Amaretto liqueur

Cut the cheese into 4 inch squares about ½ inch thick.

Press into the pine nuts so that the nuts adhere to one side, and set aside.

Heat a 10 inch non-stick pan over medium heat, and add 2 tablespoons butter. When the butter is sizzling, place the cheese in the pan, nut side down, and cook until golden brown on the nut side, about 3 minutes.

Remove each piece, and place on a separate plate, nut side up.

Add the cinnamon, amaretto, and remaining 2 teaspoons butter to the pan and reduce by half over high heat, about 2 minutes.

Pour the sauce over the cheese, and serve immediately.

Serves 4
