Very nice pay, creamy and refreshing...not overly sweet, which we enjoy. I only had 1 sm container of raspberries, so I combined them with unsweetened frozen strawberry slices, added frozen. That was delicious. Garnished with whipped cream from a can and raspberries. Doesn't really need the whipped cream, I just had it on hand. Be sure to add in the sour cream when gelatine mixture is still runny, I forgot mine in the fridge and 25 min later, it was already firm. I had to beat in the sour cream, and ended up with a slightly tapioca -like texture which couldn't firm up completely. It was still delicious, despite my error! You could make this with a lot of different fruits, or a combination, as I did. I did add about 1/2 tsp fresh lemon zest, which added a nice touch, but it's fine without. I think this is about a 4 star recipe, but I added 1 for ease....you can whip this up very quickly and it makes a really nice dessert. If you need to make a crust as I did, try the oil pie crust, #202023, they were great together! Thanks for the keeper!
This is a great recipe, 5 star, the only thing I will add next time is a maybe a tablespoon of cornstarch to the berries to help retain the juice. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe! :)
We don't like really sweet desserts (I almost always use less sweetener than the recipe calls for.) But the unsweetened raspberries make this a really tart dessert. I would put some of the sugar over the raspberries and let them sit for several hours so they soak up some of the sweetness.
