Strawberries Romanoff

Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3/4 cup strawberry mixture and 1 tablespoon whipping cream mixture)
Cointreau is a clear liqueur with an intense orange flavor. Its presence here--along with real whipping cream--makes this dessert truly authentic. If you would rather not use alcohol, substitute orange juice.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups quartered fresh strawberries
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Cointreau or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
