20--- Russian Cream

AHHHHHH. 20! We meet again! This is one of my hubby's favorite desserts (no, he's not into chocolate-- not sure why). It is such a light dessert and so easy to make! But, yes, combining sugar, sour cream, and whipping cream does equal a 20% dessert!

Russian Cream

Serves 8

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
1 cup water
2 cups whipping cream
3 cups sour cream
1 Tbsp vanilla extract

2 cups raspberries (or berry of choice)

In a medium saucepan, blend sugar and gelatin. Add water and mix well. Let stand for 5 minutes. Stirring constantly, bring to full boil.

Remove from heat and whisk in whipping cream. In a larger mixing bowl, mix sour cream and vanilla. Slowly add sugar-cream mixture and whisk to mix.

Place in individual serving dishes (martini glasses are pretty) and place in refrigerator for 3-4 hours or until solid.

Add fresh seasonal berries of your choice on top.
