I'm not sure where my mom got the recipe from, but it is creamy and tart and sweet and just super yummy. Plus, it is a dessert that we count as a fruity side, which is what holiday eating is supposed to look like.
The recipe is doubled from the original because we fill a jello mold (that's right).
- 2 3 oz packages of raspberry gelatin
- 20 oz of frozen raspberries, thawed (or at least you are suppose to thaw them, but I always forget to)
- 2 cup sour cream
- 1 1/2 cup water
Add all ingredients to a saucepan and combine with a whisk, dissolving the lumps of sour cream. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, stirring to prevent it from burning. Pour into mold (or something else if you aren't cool enough to have a jello mold) and chill overnight.
Best served with a bit of homemade whipped cream, because, you know, everything sweet during the holidays is better with a little whipped cream.
