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.
Garnish with strawberry and mint. Serve immediately.
Makes 4 Servings
