    Scoutie's Note:

    This is a GREAT summer dessert! I don't bother to strain the berries, but that is my preference. For the cream, I reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. I have found that using fresh baking powder, not something that has been in my pantry for 6 months, works best. From Bon Appetit, 2006.
