I was playing with sorbet recently.  I was reading something (do not ask me what right now because I cannot remember) and decided that my strawberry sorbet needed orange.  But it really needed a pop so I added a bit Cointreau.  My Beloved's eyes got huge when he tasted this because the flavor of the strawberries popped so much!  This disappeared faster then normal, even with the temperature being close to a hundred outside.

Strawberry with a touch of Cointreau sorbet

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

10 ounces strawberries

1 ounce Cointreau

Put 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil and boil one minute.  Put the strawberries in a blender.  Pour the syrup over the strawberries and blend very well (about 30 seconds to a minute).  Add the Cointreau.  Freeze per directions of you ice cream machine or put in a freezer proof container, cover.  Stir it up in two hours.  Cover.  Stir again in a couple hours.  Freeze.

Yum!  Then I added the cookies I am going to post about tomorrow.  Fabulous.  My Beloved did the wordless groan.  All very good.
