Strawberries Romanoff

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.

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 3/4 cup strawberry mixture and 3 tablespoons whipped cream mixture)


  • 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
  • none Mint sprigs (optional)


1. Combine first 3 ingredients in a bowl. Cover and chill 3 1/2 hours.

2. Place cream, 3 tablespoons sugar, and vanilla in a small bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Spoon over strawberry mixture. Garnish with mint, if desired. Serve immediately.
