Summer is here and what a perfect recipe for my garden strawberries. So very simple and pretty too with a creamy, fresh taste with that little hint of baileys to set it off. I did cut the recipe in half to serve the two of us and once the heavy cream was whipped, added everything in at once. Not quite as pretty as layering but yummy anyways. Next time I think I'd still put everything in at once and just make the strawberry mixture doubled so I could also layer it for the looks - after all you can never have to many strawberries in my book.
This was great!. I doubled the recipe put it in one large glass bowl instead of making individual servings. Looked really pretty with with the layers and a few whole strawberries on top. The only other change I made was to add some sugar (about 1/2 cup) to the strawberries before I pureed them. If you had better strawberries, it would not be necessary.
Ok, I have a confession to make... I made a small test batch to see if I would like them enought to serve at a bigger dinner party. My goal was to see how easy it was to fill the wine glasses without looking messy (it was easy), and to see how far ahead of time I could make them and still have them looking good. That's the part I'll never know... because no sooner did I get done "testing" the first one did the second one get pulled back out of the fridge... Soooooo good!!! Oh, and I mixed the Bailey's and heavy cream together from the beginning. Whips up just fine that way. I might add the sugar with the cream too next time instead of dusting. There will be a next time, in fact, I think that time is right now...
This was so easy to make and devour. Fabulous desert that looks looks great too. Made for PAC, Spring 2008
I come from Irish stock & expect you cannot get more Irish than a blend of Ryan & Sullivan. Unlike the Irish, I confess I am not much of a drinker, but a good margarita or Baileys & coffee are my faves. Like other reviewers, I would not have thot this could be as good as it was. It was easily made using my immersion blender & was yummy! I chgd the presentation a tad w/a sprinkle of choc shavings instead of powdered sugar. My thinking - How could strawberries, Baileys & whipped cream w/choc be bad? Thx for sharing this new Baileys taste sensation w/us. Yum! :-)
I have this cookbook, and we love to make this recipe. It is so simple and pretty!
Very, very nice - and so easy! I would never have thought to combine strawberries and Bailey's but I love the combo - strawberries and 'adult' cream.
This was heavenly. :D Left the Bailey's out of the little guys portion and it was gone in an instant. Zaar World Tour 05
