Sauce Grand Mariner (Simple Method)

1 pint vanilla ice cream such as Hagen Das

3 tablespoons Grand Mariner


Melt the ice cream in a sauce pan with the Grand Marnier, be careful not to let it boil. Strain it into a serving container a refrigerate until ready to use.


Butter a soufflé mold and coat it with sugar, (about 1 tablespoon each). Whip the egg white with the cream of tartar until stiff peaks form, then fold into the soufflé base a1/3 at a time. Put the mixture into the mold and bake at 400 degree F for 30 - 35 minutes. Don't open the oven door during baking. When the time is up remove it from the oven an bring it to the table to serve. Cut through the top in quarters, serving each person a piece of the top and some of the creamy interior. Spoon 2 -3 tablespoons of the sauce over and around the soufflé and then dust each plate with a little powdered sugar. A single fresh ripe strawberry is a nice additional , yet optional garnish.
