Creme Fraiche

READY IN: 1min
Recipe by evelynathens

so tasty topping desserts. so useful in cooking. This takes no time at all to mix up, but make it the night before you need to use it in a recipe (at least) as it does need 12-14 hours for the cream to sour.

I was given this recipe. I tried putting it in the oven with the light on. But have found that if I just put it on the counter and forget it, it is awesome. I even double the recipe. Last one I put in 2 Tablespoons of sour cream and 2 of yogurt, as I was out of buttermilk. It worked well. I believe the flavor is maybe a little more mild than with buttermilk. Love a dollop on fruit soups as well as in other dishes.
