Marinated Ponchatoula Strawberries

I love Strawberries Romanoff and it's nothing more than strawberries marinated in Grand Marnier and blended with fresh whipped cream. I knew that we could do a lot better than that here in Louisiana. So here's our jazzed up version of that classical dish.


  • 8 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1 cup strawberry liqeur
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, chopped
  • 1/4 cup strawberry wine
  • 6 sugar cookies, optional

Place sliced stawberries in a large mixing bowl along with strawberry liqeur,1 cup of sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Blend well, cover with clear wrap and refrigerate, preferably overnight. When ready to serve, place heavy whipping cream in a large mixing bowl. Add 1/4 cup of sugar, chopped strawberries and strawberry wine. Using a hand mixer, whip cream until heavy peaks form. Remove the marinated strawberries from the refrigerator and fold into the whipped cream. Serve the mixture in a champagne or wine glass. A sugar cookie may be added as a garnish.
