I made this as the Recipe Exchange Group recipe for the week of April 19th. The cream mixture, when warm, tastes good, but I couldn't wrap my mind around it with cold strawberries (though I probably could have eaten it that way). So I made our dessert glasses and chilled them. When I served it my husband asked me if this was melted ice cream. Of course I told him no, it isn't, but in reality, that's pretty much what it is. So tomorrow the remaining 6 servings are going in my ice cream maker. As a note to anyone looking to sub orange extract for the Grand Marnier, I subbed 1/2 tsp. and personally I thought that wasn't enough. My husband could not taste the orange flavor at all, either. I'd use a full teaspoon next time. Thank you for the recipe, I think I'd actually have given this 5 stars if I'd made it the way some of the others did with whipping the cream beforehand! EDIT 4/22/10: I did put the remainder in my ice cream machine with another 1/2 tsp. orange extract & the sliced berries. The leftovers made a satisfying ice cream.
