Recipe by Bob Crouch

This makes an excellent dessert after a great meal. Just serve as individual molds or slice off a chunk from a large mold. Surround with fruit. You can't go wrong.

Russian cream is my favorite dessert. I use almond flavoring instead of vanilla and put sliced sweetened strawberries on top. You need to use a thick commercial sour cream. One envelope of gelatine translates to 7.8 grams (0.25 ounces) for our European friends.
