2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved

2 ounces orange-flavored liqueur (recommended: Grand Marnier)

3 tablespoons sugar

1 cup whipping cream

1 teaspoon almond extract

12 amaretti cookies, unwrapped and lightly crushed


  1. In a medium bowl add the berries and douse with the liqueur. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar and let the berries macerate to get their juices flowing.

  3. Serve the berries in dessert dishes topped with whipped cream and crushed amaretti cookies.
