Directions

  1. Mix strawberries and 6 Tbs. of the sugar in a bowl; let stand until berries release their liquid, 30 to 60 minutes.
  2. When ready to assemble dessert, beat cream and orange zest to soft peaks, gradually adding remaining 1 1/2 Tbs. sugar.
  3. Pour 6 Tbs. of the strawberry juice that has collected in the bowl over the crumbled macaroons. Toss to coat.
  4. To assemble, choose six goblets that hold at least 12 ounces; in each, make two layers in the following order: scant 1/4 cup macaroons, scant 1/4 cup whipped cream, 1/4 cup strawberries. Refrigerate until ready to serve, up to 2 hours.

Fantastic! A delicious, pretty, and simple way to impress guests. I will be keeping this recipe and passing it along. I made the Coconut Macaroons III recipe instead of buying...amazing macaroons. They are way tastier and easier than going to the store!

This is an easy and delicious twist on strawberry shortcake in elegant form. The orange peel, which we used, gives a subtle burst of summery "creamsicle" alongside the berries, but could be omitted. Also, for the sake of simplicity we layered everything in a trifle bowl. Parfaits are nicer if you have them. This would be lovely garnished with a bit of reserved whipped cream and a mint sprig or sprinkle of orange zest!

I add a dash of balsamic vinegar to the straberries, it adds a subtle but much enhancing taste and helps to draw out the flavors.
