Fresh Strawberry Sauce

1 lb. fresh strawberries, hulled

1/3 c sugar

1 tbsp orange-flavored liqueur (Gran Marnier, Orange Curacao, etc.)

Slice or quarter strawberries (should be about the size of an olive). Sprinkle sugar and liqueur over berries. Cover and shake gently. Refrigerate for several hours. Keeps for several days. Double this recipe if serving all shortcakes at the same time.
