Russian Cream with Strawberries

Sunday morning after church we had a family brunch.  We had great breakfast casserole, cinnamon rolls and fruit.  The grand kids all love strawberries so John said I am going to make
  "Russian Cream".  
This is a recipe that an past co-worker of John's, who suddenly passed away about 30 years ago, shared with us.  We enjoy many of her great recipes.
Thank you Jennie. 
It is a great Sunday Brunch treat.  

This photo show the recipe doubled.


1 cup + plus 3 tbsp whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 envelope plain gelatin
1 cup light sour cream
1/2 - 1 tsp pure vanilla

In a sauce pan heat and stir together whipping cream, sugar and gelatin, until gelatin dissolves. ( no granules )
Cool until slightly thick. Whisk in sour cream and vanilla until smooth. Pour into a 3 cup mold  that has been rinsed with cold water.  Chill for at least 4 hours or over night.  When ready to unmold and serve with prepared strawberries.


4-6 cups strawberries
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Slice strawberries and dust in layers with powdered sugar.

It is a delicious refreshing treat.  Enjoy!
