Creme Louisa (Swedish Creme)
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
Dash of salt
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
1 cup dairy sour cream
1/2 tsp almond flavoring or 2 Tbs brandy or liqueur (she uses the almond flavoring)
Crushed and sweetened strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or red currants
Combine heavy cream, milk, sugar and salt in saucepan and cook over low heat until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat.
Soften gelatin in cold water and stir into the cream mixture. When gelatin is dissolved, beat in the sour cream with a rotary beater; beat only until thoroughly blended and smooth. Blend in flavoring. Pour into lightly oiled 2-cup mold or individula molds.** Chill until firm. Unmold and serve with crushed sweetened berries or mixed fruit. Makes 4-6 servings.
**Sometimes my mom makes it in individual servings in wine glasses, but doesn't oil the glasses and instead of unmolding it we just eat it out of the glasses with the berries on top. Raspberries are wonderful with this!
