A great way to celebrate the start of strawberry season!
2 pints fresh strawberries
½ C. plus 4 T. Cosa Dolce
2 large seedless oranges, peeled and sectioned
Angel food cake
Whipped cream and/or chocolate sauce
Sometimes the simple things are the best! This dessert is really easy and very fancy looking. It’s a great way to use strawberries that may be a little past their prime. Hull and quarter strawberries and place in a large non-reactive bowl. Peel oranges and section them to remove membrane. Do the sectioning over the strawberry bowl to catch the orange juice. Add orange sections to berries. If you have never sectioned an orange before, it’s a great skill to have. Cooking.com has a great video tutorial. You can find it on You Tube. Just go to www.YouTube.com and type in “section an orange.”
Add ½ cup of Cosa Dolce. Stir gently, then refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Cube 3 1-inch slices of Angel Food cake. In the bottom of a martini glass, put 5 cubes of Angel Food cake. Top with ½ c. to ¾ c. of the berry and orange mixture. Be sure to include some of the juice. Drizzle the top of each dessert with 1T of Cosa Dolce.
THEN, go crazy! Drizzle the top of the strawberries with chocolate sauce or top with a big dollop of whipped cream. What the heck, do both! Prepare for the rave reviews. Serves 4.
