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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine the strawberries, granulated sugar, and Cointreau in a small bowl; cover and refrigerate for 1/2 hour.

Step 2

Combine the whipping cream and powdered sugar in a small bowl, and beat with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form.

Step 3

Spoon 3/4 cup strawberry mixture into each of 4 dessert bowls. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon whipping cream mixture.

Made for guests and it was very tasty. I think the sugar could be reduced on the berries and in the cream.

Our guests loved this simple, delicious, easy dessert. I used a mix of cointreau and an orange pineapple juice. I broke a thin swedish orange cookie and added a few pieces to each.
