Berries and Cream
Hello everyone. It's been a very eventful and sad week. The tragedies and losses have been far too many. I can't help but think of the families that are grieving the sudden and unexpected death of their loved ones and the many people who were injured. My heart grows with sadness. I can only ask that we all keep these families in our prayers.
Now, I would like to share something sweet and heart warming. It is a very scrumptious dessert featuring fruits swimming in a silky-smooth cream. This fresh and fragrant Berries and Cream combo mixes strawberries and raspberries with whipping cream and sweetened condensed milk. It is a great summer dessert, weekend treat or simply just because. Surprisingly, it is very airy and light. I don't mean low calories girls. It is ok to indulge from time to time don't you think....
I hope you enjoy the recipe. Thank you for your visit.
1 Cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/3 cup of powder sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup of chopped fresh strawberries
1/2 cup of fresh raspberries
7 crushed cookies (any plain cookie)
4 Whole strawberries for garnish
4 Whole raspberries for garnish
fresh mint for garnish
In a medium bowl, combine whipping cream, vanilla and sugar. Using a mixer at high speed, beat until medium peaks form; set aside.
With a pastry brush coat dessert glasses with a thin layer of sweetened condensed milk. Now coat glass with a dusting of the crushed cookies; set aside.
Lightly fold the sweetened condensed milk into the mixed cream. (Do not mix, just fold)
Fill half of the dessert glasses with cream. Add a few of the chopped strawberries and raspberries. and top with a sprinkle of the crushed cookie for a bit of crunch. Fill dessert glass with more cream until you reach the top of the glass. Add more of the chopped strawberries, raspberries and crushed cookies to finish.
