Strawberries a la Nino Recipe

Four servings of a very attractive dessert.

28 fresh strawberries
2 oz. tawny port
4 canned figs
3 oz. kirsch
2 cups sweetened whipped cream
4 scoops vanilla ice cream
4 macaroons
2 t. orange flavored liqueur

Step 1. Wash and hull strawberries. Pierce them with a fork so they will absorb the wine and pour the port over the strawberries. Chill for at least one hour.

Step 2. Remove strawberries from refrigerator, add figs and partially crush. Add the kirsch and mix. Add the whipped cream and mix again. Add the ice cream and stir just enough to blend in the other ingredients.

Step 3. Transfer the mixture to four individual glasses or a deep dessert dish. Crush the macaroons and sprinkle over the dessert. Sprinkle the liqueur over the macaroons and serve immediately.
