An Easy Yet Impressive Dessert
Strawberries with Frangelico Whipped Cream is one of my favorite desserts to make when company comes. It tastes like gourmet fare and guests always rave about it, yet it is so quick and simple to make. At first glance it looks like your standard strawberries with whipped cream, but the use of brown sugar as opposed to white sugar, and the addition of Frangelico hazlenut liqueur take it to the next level. One taste and your guests will melt into a chorus of "mmmmmmms," followed by "what did you put in this?" and "I've got to have this recipe."
one cup heavy cream, chilled
4 Tbsp. brown sugar
2 Tbsp. Frangelico liqueur
One pint strawberries, hulled and quartered
Place a deep stainless steel bowl and your mixing beaters in the freezer to chill for about 15 minutes.
Using the chilled bowl and beaters, whip the cream at low speed for about 30 seconds.
Increase to medium speed and whip for about 30 more seconds, then increase mixer speed to high.
When cream begins to thicken, add brown sugar and Frangelico. Continue whipping on high speed until soft peaks form. Stand mixers are more powerful than hand mixers and may whip cream more quickly. Do not over beat.
Layer whipped cream and strawberries in 4 dessert glasses. Garnish with a final dollop of whipped cream and a single strawberry slice, if desired.
Serve immediately, or cover each glass with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to two hours before serving.
