Lois’ Mixed Berries Romanoff

Berries Romanoff with Shortcake

Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, wine berries and mangoes are good in this dessert.

Recipe Idea: We had this dessert for supper tonight. Don made the shortcake and I made the berries. I changed Don’s Strawberries Romanoff from simply strawberries to a mixed berry combination of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Also, the original recipe calls for either Grand Marnier or Cointreau, but we didn’t have either, so I used Triple Sec. It was delicious. The shortcake comes from our strawberry shortcake recipe.

Mixed Berries Romanoff Nutrition Label (includes Shortcake)


2 pints of mixed berries: raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, and/or blackberries (mango is good, too)
1/3 C granulated sugar
4 tsp powdered sugar, divided in half
1/3 C Triple Sec (or Gran Marnier or Cointreau)
Zest of one orange or 1/2 tsp dried orange zest
1 C heavy (whipping) cream
A few drops of vanilla extract

Wash the berries and pat dry by blotting with paper towel. If you are using strawberries, remove stems and slice them into bite-sized pieces. Set aside. In a bowl mix the 1/3 C sugar, 2 tsp powdered sugar, orange zest and Triple Sec. Pour this mixture over the berries and lightly toss to be sure they are all coated with the liquid. Refrigerate in a covered bowl until time to serve.

Whip the heavy cream adding the 2 tsp of powdered sugar (and a few drops of vanilla extract if desired) halfway through.

Serve the berries over shortcake with a dollop of whipped cream, or separately without the shortcake.

About Lois

My husband, Don Crawford, and I love to cook. For me, it's more about eating delicious food than the actual cooking. I like to cook mostly because I like to eat, and I like the proud sense of accomplishment when the food I make is appreciated by others. For Don, it's all about presentation. So we make a good team. I'm too impatient to create beautiful presentations (usually), but he sweeps in and takes over so it all turns out great. All our recipes are tried and true!
