Looking for something special for Mother’s Day (or Father’s Day, or Valentine’s Day, or any day you just want a nifty dessert)?
Check out this swoon-worthy strawberry recipe from Bailey, made with Baileys Strawberries & Cream Liqueur.
The result: a beautifully boozy strawberry shortcake.
The recipe calls for crumbled shortbread cookies. You can substitute cubes of pound cake, if you prefer.
Or heck: Use both!
And of course, you can serve a glass of Baileys Strawberries & Cream liqueu with the shortcake.
You can build the shortcakes in pint glasses, large goblets, or anything else you have on hand.
1. BEAT the Baileys Strawberries & Cream liqueur and the cream cheese with a balloon whisk, until smooth.
2. WHIP the cream add it to the bowl with the cream cheese mixture. Fold in the strawberries.
3. CRUMBLE the shortbread into two glasses. Add the strawberries and cream mixture. Top with the strawberry garnish and chill for 30 minutes or longer. Serve and swoon!
Since the debut of Original Irish Cream Liqueur in 1974, Baileys has expanded its portfolio to include Almande (vegan, made with almond milk instead of cream), Chocolate Cherry, Espresso Crème, Salted Caramel, Strawberries & Cream and Vanilla Cinnamon.
Some flavors, such as Crème Caramel, Hazelnut, Mint Chocolate and Pumpkin Spice, have been retired, leaving behind fond memories.
No doubt, there will be new varieties on the horizon!
