Strawberries Romanoff

Each layer could be eaten alone if you really had that kind of time

Clearly we never tire of strawberries. This recipe’s simple and fun to say. We think it must be Italian, since it starts with Rome. After you finish bookmarking, printing or memorizing this, head over to Eat, Play, Love for a sweet contest.

Strawberries Romanoff

  • 2 pints strawberries, hulled and halved
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2-4 tablespoons cointreau or triple sec
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Stir berries with sugar and liquor and refrigerate for 1-2 hours, stirring occasionally. Mix about a third of the berries and the juice with the whipped cream until it’s light and fluffy and you just want to eat the whole bowl. Divide remaining berries between two to four glasses and top with whipped cream. Refrigerate until ready to serve, which ideally would be within an hour or so.

    Years ago I worked as a pantry chef at a small little upscale place. We served strawberries romanoff and if I remember right we put a small bit of marcapone cheese and a pinch of cinnamon in the cream. It was divine. Thanks for the reminder.

    Strawberries Roamin’ Off? Looks awesome. Here in B’more we only get really good strawberries for about two-three weeks in June @ the farmers markets. I’ve never seen a really ripe strawberry @ a grocery store ever.

    Mmm/, sounds delicious! It also sounds a bit like Eton Mess, which, if you haven’t heard of it, is chantilly cream mixed with summer fruits and crumbly bits of meringue. YUM!
