 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
  250      g             strawberries -- hulled and sliced
                         or chopped, if large
    4      large         egg yolks
    4      tbsp          caster sugar
    8      tbsp          sweet sherry or cider
           large pinch   ground cinnamon
                         extra ground cinnamon, strawberries
                         and strawberry or mint leaves -- to decorate
 
 1. Divide the strawberries between 4 heatproof glass dishes and stand on
 saucers.
 
 2. Place the egg yolks, sugar, sherry or cider and cinnamon in a large
 heatproof bowl.
 
 3. Just before serving, half fill a pan with water and bring to the boil,
 then reduce the heat. Place the bowl over the water, making sure it doesn’t
 touch the water, and whisk the egg yolk mixture for 4-5 minutes with an
 electric whisk until very thick and foamy. Quickly pour over the
 strawberries. 
 
 4. Decorate with a little ground cinnamon, strawberries and mint leaves.
 Serve warm with amaretti biscuits, if liked.

 NOTES : Wonderfully light, this dessert is best finished at the very last
 moment so that the sauce is still warm when you serve it.
