A ‘tease of a taste,’ amounting to only three or four spoonfulls, crème custards are the luscious and grin-coaxing Casanovas of the dessert tray.
...and this EASY recipe is PERFECT for a sweet ending to your special Valentines Day dinner!
In small saucepan, gently warm 1 1/2 cups heavy cream with 3/4 cup sugar over medium heat, whisking constantly until the sugar fully dissolves.
1
Using a separate saucepan, sprinkle 1 1/2 teaspoons gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water and let stand 5 minutes to soften.
2
Heat gently and whisk until gelatin dissolves. I use a tiny whisk for this, being sure to scrape the sides of the pot for any accumulation of gelatin.
3
Stir the gelatin mixture into the cream mixture. Next, whisk in an entire 8 ounce container of sour cream. Yup, the whole thing!
4
Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of a quality vanilla extract and continue to whisk until super duper smooth.
5
Cover and refrigerate until mixture thickens to the consistency of yogurt, about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
6
To make the raspberry sauce warm 1 1/2 teaspoons seedless preserves and 1 tablespoon lemon juice, stirring to completely break up the preserves. Cool.
7
Layer cream mixture and raspberry sauce in 6 dessert glasses. Cover each with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 2 hours.
8
Garnish with fresh raspberries before serving.
