    PanNan's Note:

    This recipe is from Jacques Pepin's Fast Food My Way. It's such a simple but elegant (and tasty) dessert, and requires no cooking. He says that panachee is a mixture of two or more ingredients with different colors, flavors, or shapes. This recipe is very flexible. You can substitute similar ingredients as noted. The berry puree can be made a few hours ahead of time, and the assembly, which only takes a few minutes, can be done just before serving.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 1/2 cups ripe strawberries, hulled (or other fresh berries)
    • 1/4 cup strawberry jam (or raspberry or currant jam)
    • 4 shortbread cookies (or other cookies like almond cookies)
    • 2/3 cup creme fraiche, divided (or sour cream, or quark)
    • 4 sprigs fresh mint (or basil)


    1. 1
      Cut off the bottom and top of each berry, ending up with about 1 1/4 cups of tops and bottoms. Slice the centers of the berries and set aside.
    2. 2
      Process the tops and bottoms of the berries with the jam, in a small food processor, until pureed. Mix the sliced berry centers into the puree. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    3. 3
      When ready to serve, coarsely crush the cookies in a plastic zip type bag. Divide the crumbs among four glass bowls or goblets. Spoon about 1/2 of the berry mixture over the crumbs in each bowl/goblet. Stir the creme fraiche well and spoon about 1/3 cup of it (in total) on top of the berries. Then add the remaining berry mixture to each bowl/goblet. Garnish with a dollop of the remaining creme fraiche and a sprig of fresh mint.

      This is really good and so simple. The only change I made was I added a little sugar to the sour cream, just because I thought it would be a little bland. I guess it really didn't need it, but it was still really refreshing and yummy! Made for ZWT5 - Epicurean Queens
