I deviated a little in the presentation and added some whipped cream. Delicious!

Hard to get good fresh strawberries this time of year but I wanted a berry dish for dessert. Used frozen strawberries that I soaked in the brandy for a few hours while they thawed. I mixed the sour cream and brown sugar and only half the called for brandy (since the berries would have brandy flavor now) and served that dolloped on top of the drained strawberries (make a cocktail out of the drained strawberry/brandy - it's delicious!)

You can find this recipe in most large cookbooks (like Betty Crocker etc. ..). This is still a great recipe!!

Made it as a small snack for my family. They loved it!! My mom even wanted to make it to take to a party. They liked it so much she wasn't allowed to take her dish home because there was some left over. It easily has become our new summer recipe.

This is a real party winner, and so easy it hurts. Just fresh berries and the dip. Takes less than 5 minutes to prepare. Guests rave.

I have had this MANY times at La Madeleine's, and this is pretty much dead on. I do usually use Disaronno tho and it turns out fantastic.

I had strawberries romanoff on crepes in Alexandria, Va. and it was one of the best things I ate while there except for the she crab soup.

My daughter and I always get Strawberry Romanoff at La Madeleine's. This is a wonderful match for that delicious taste.
It took minutes because I had to open a bag of brown sugar, and it cost only a few dollars for 2 cups of sauce.
I didn't stick to the recipe exactly. I had Bailey's, which was great with us.
This may become a regular treat around here.
