> 1/2 ( 10.75 oz.) pound cake, cut into pieces 1 1/4 inches thick
> 1 lb large fresh strawberries, hulled (about 16)
> 8 ea short skewers
> 4 tbsp seedless strawberry preserves
> 2 tbsp orange juice
> 1 tbsp orange liqueur (optional)
> dollop whipped cream (optional)


Coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill to medium (300°F-350°F). Thread pound cake pieces and strawberries alternately as desired on skewers, beginning and ending with pound cake. Place skewers on a platter.
For the glaze, in a small bowl combine preserves, orange juice and (if desired) liqueur. Gently brush half of the glaze on both sides of each skewer.
Grill skewers 1-1 ½ minutes per side or just until grill marks appear. Transfer to a serving platter; brush with remaining glaze. Serve skewers with whipped cream, if desired.


*If using wooden skewers, soak at least 30 minutes before grilling to prevent burning.
