Strawberries With Cointreau

"This one takes a couple hours because the strawberries have to soak up the cointreau, so allow enough time for that. If you don't want to whip your own whipped cream just use it from a can! This is from The Vancouver Sun Newspaper, 1996."

    Excellent. We had this lovely strawberry dessert watching the World Cup Finals and it was a big hit.

    Yum ! this certainly is an adult way to eat strawberries... a little bit of decadence to top of a special dinner. DH made this and his "thinnest' strips of orange peel are the ones that made it into the photo, the others were so big that they rather overwhelmed the dish. Still, the flavour was there, and enjoyed. Please see my rating system, a lovely 4 stars :) Thanks !
