Strawberry Charlotte Russe

Print Email

2 dozen ladyfingers
1 ½ tablespoons of unflavored gelatin (1 package)
¼ cup of cold water
½ cup sugar
2 cups strawberries
½ cup strawberry juice
1 teaspoon of vanilla
½ teaspoon of salt
1 cup of heavy cream, whipped

Line a glass mold or spring form cake pan with half the ladyfingers. Soak gelatin for 5 minutes in water. Mix sugar with strawberries and let stand about 5 minutes. This will make juice. If there is not enough to make ½ cup of juice add water to strawberry juice to make ½ cup.

Dissolve gelatin in juice heated to a boiling point. Fold in berries, flavoring, salt, and whipped cream. Pour on top of ladyfingers. Chill for 2 hours or longer. Serves 6.
