Ingredients

Whipped Cream

Praline sauce

Preparation

For Whipped Cream

Whip the cream until very soft peaks form. Fold in the Cointreau or the orange zest, the sugar and vanilla, and beat until fluffy. Chill until ready to serve.

For Praline Sauce

Combine the brown sugar and water in a bowl and transfer to a deep saucepan; do not stir at this point. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook without stirring, tipping the pan occasionally to distribute the coloring. Cook until the mixture is a golden caramel color (about 6 to 10 minutes). Remove from the heat and slowly stir in the pecans, cream and salt.

To finish the Shortcake

Cut the scones in half crosswise and place 2 halves on each of 4 plates. Combine the strawberries with the maple syrup and mound over the scones. Drizzle with the praline sauce and top with the whipped cream. Garnish the shortcake with orange zest, mint leaves and additional berries if desired!
