Looking for an authentic Irish dessert? Try a cranachan with fresh strawberries and Irish whiskey.
- 1/2 cup sliced almonds
- 1 cup rolled oats
- 1-1/4 cups heavy whipping cream
- 4 tablespoons honey
- 4 tablespoons Irish whiskey
- 8-12 raspberries
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
In a dry pan, toast the almonds and rolled oats for about 5 minutes until golden. Stir often and watch carefully, since they can burn easily.
Whip the heavy cream to the stiff-peak stage, then carefully fold in the honey, whiskey, and lemon juice. Last fold in the toasted oats and almonds, reserving a little to sprinkle over the top as a garnish.
Divide the cream mixture into four small bowls and garnish with raspberries and the remainder of the oatmeal/almond mixture.
