Directions To Prepare California Strawberry Granita w/ Marinated Berries
#To make Granita:
#In saucepan combine Sugar, water and cinnamon sticks.
#Bring to boil, stirring; boil 1 minute. Cool.
#Puree strawberries in food processor or blender until smooth.
#Strain out seeds in fine sieve.
#In chilled hotel pan thoroughly mix strawberry puree, lemon juice, salt and enough of the cooled sugar syrup to balance strawberry flavor.
#Place in freezer.
#As mixture begins to freeze, chip the frozen portion with the tines of a fork every 30 to 45 minutes until no liquid remains.
#Place in airtight container, cover and store in freezer up to 2 weeks.
#To make Cookie Cups:
#In food processor grind almonds medium-fine.
#Place in sieve; shake out dust. In saucepan over low heat combine corn syrup, butter and Sugar.
#Stir until butter and Sugar is completely melted.
#Remove from heat. Mix in anisette, and then flour to blend thoroughly.
#Portion rounded tablespoonfuls of batter onto parchment-lined sheet pans, spacing apart, and flatten slightly (each cookie will be about 5 inches in diameter when baked).
#Bake in 350°F oven about 6 to 8 minutes until evenly golden brown.
#Cool slightly; lift with spatula and shape into pointed cups in 6-ounce martini glasses.
#(If cookies cool too much to shape, return to oven for a minute or two to soften.)
#When cups are hard and cool, store in an airtight container up to three days.
#To make Marinated Berries:
#Combine ingredients in bowl at least 15 minutes before serving.
#For each serving to order:
#Place Cookie Cup in martini glass; fill with 1/2 cup Granita and top with 1/3 cup Marinated Berries.
#Top with whipped cream, if desired.
