Strawberries Romanoff is an easy, no-bake dessert that makes the perfect after dinner treat. Fresh strawberries are soaked in orange liqueur, then topped with a tangy and sweet sour cream whipped cream topping.
¼cuporange liqueurlike triple sec or grand marnier
½cupheavy whipping cream
In a bowl, add your sliced strawberries. Top with orange liqueur and granulated sugar. Toss to coat, cover bowl, and chill for two hours. Remove from refrigerator and stir once more before assembling your desserts.
In a bowl, add heavy cream and confectioner's sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form. Fold in sour cream.
Portion strawberries and a small amount of juices into four bowls or dessert dishes. Top with a dollop of whipped cream. Optionally, garnish with a drizzle of strawberry syrup and mint leaves.
Non-alcoholic version: Substitute orange liqueur with orange juice instead.
As the strawberries macerate in the sugar mixture, they will release juices and you will have extra syrup in your bowl - this is normal. Discard any remaining juices after assembling your desserts.
Whipped cream is best served immediately after whipping, but will keep for several hours in the refrigerator if made beforehand.
Your strawberries will continue to macerate and break down as they set in the sugar mixture, and are best enjoyed the same day they are prepared.
