My over used recipe book is not going to last forever, so I am copying this wonderful recipe here. A great addition to any festive table, the fruit is so refreshing after a big meal.

Its not Xmas but I halved this and made a treat for DD and myself. I used up some frozen sponge cake instead of sponge fingers and my berries were just strawberries but any berry is great with cointreau ! I loved this !
