1 Pound Strawberries, Cleaned
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Sweet Liqueur, Such As Maraschino
1/3 Cup All-Purpose Flour
1 Egg White
2 tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Softened
1/4 Cup Brandy
Mix the sugar with the liqueur, and add the berries. Mix well, and let sit for about one hour. In a bowl, mix together the flour and butter. Add the egg, and brandy. Add enough milk to make a smooth batter. Beat the egg white until stiff, and then fold this into the batter. Heat the oil to 375 degrees F. Dip the berries into the batter, and fry until golden. Drain on paper towels, sprinkle with powdered sugar, and serve.
