Cantaloupe Melba

2 c Fresh raspberries*
1/3 c Sugar
2 tb Orange-flavored liqueur**
2 Cantaloupes
3 c Raspberry sherbet

* Or unsweetened frozen raspberries, defrosted **Or raspberry-flavored brandy (optional)

In a blender or food processor, whirl raspberries until pureed. Pour through a sieve to remove seeds. Stir sugar and liqueur (if used) into puree and mix well; cover and chill.

Halve cantaloupes and remove seeds; peel and cut into thin slices. Line each of 8 small dessert bowls or goblets with 3 or 4 melon slices. Top melon with a scoop of sherbet and pour 2 tablespoons chilled raspberry sauce over sherbet.

Raspberry sherbet in goblets lined with sliced cantaloupe and topped with Melba sauce would make a memorable finale for a menu featuring an egg and cheese dish.
