About half hour before serving, toss sliced strawberries with sugar and Grand Marier, if using. (You can also substitute a few gratings of orange zest.)

In a small mixing bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners sugar and vanilla until smooth; fold in whipped cream. Chill, if not using right away.
