Russian Cream Topped with Fresh Strawberries

I love my desserts and so do the kids, so I make it a point to try out different desserts with them whenever possible. This recipe for Russian cream is a chilled dessert that is set into a fancy mold or into individual molds. I chill mine in individual pudding dishes and that works great.

Serves eight.


2 cups sweet cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cold water
1 Tbsp plain gelatin
2 cups sour cream
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a saucepan, mix sweet cream and sugar. Heat cream and sugar to scalding taking care not to boil. Turn off burner. Mix cold water and gelatin. Add to sweet cream mixture and stir until dissolved. After the mixture has cooled to lukewarm, stir in sour cream and vanilla. Pour into a fancy mold or into individual molds or serving dishes. Chill until firm. Serve topped with fresh, sliced strawberries.
