Berries and Cream

For the next two weeks, I will be focusing on fresh berries for dessert ingredients. Today's uses 4 different berries.

1 pound fresh strawberries, halved lengthwise

6ounces fresh raspberries

3/4 cup white sugar, divided

4 tablespoons orange liqueur, divided

12 ounces fresh blackberries

11 ounces fresh blueberries

1 1/2 cups cold heavy whipping cream

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Shortbread cookies, to serve

Garnish: fresh mint

In a medium bowl, combine strawberries, raspberries, 1/4 cup sugar, and 2 tablespoons orange liqueur.

In another medium bowl, combine blackberries, blueberries, 14 cup sugar, and remaining 2 tablespoon sorange liqueur. Refrigetate berry mixtures until fruit begins to release juices, about 1 hour, stirring occasionally.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat cold cream, vanilla, and remaining 1/34 cup sguar at medium speed until soft peaks form, about 3 minutes. Divide whipped cream among serving bowls, and top with berries. Serve with cookies. Garnish with mint, if desired.
