Yield 4 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup strawberry mixture and 3 tablespoons whipped cream mixture)
Marinating fruit in liquid is also called macerating. Orange-flavored liqueur complements fresh berries in this classic Strawberries Romanoff dessert. Macerate for only the length of time specified so the berries retain their texture.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups sliced strawberries (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup Cointreau or Grand Marnier (orange-flavored liqueur)
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream, chilled
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Mint sprigs (optional)
