Strawberry Parfait



1 ½ cups + 2 Tbsps. Whipping Cream

1 1/2  tsps. Gelatin

¼ cup Superfine Sugar (divided)

1 Pint Strawberries                                             



  1. In a small bowl sprinkle  the Gelatin  over the 2 Tbsps. Whipping Cream.  Once the Gelatin has softened, place in the microwave for 30 seconds to dissolve the Gelatin.
  2. Add the softened Gelatin to the remaining Whipping Cream and mix well.
  3. Place the Cream in the refrigerator for approximately 30 minutes for it to cool.
  4. Wash and dry the Strawberries;  remove the hulls and set about 6 Berries aside for Garnish. 
  5. Place the remaining Berries and half the Sugar in a food processor fitted with the chopping blade;  run the Processor until the Berries are pureed. 
  6. Transfer the pureed Berries to a small bowl.
  7. When the Cream has chilled sufficiently transfer to the Food Processor (use the same bowl as the Berries were pureed in  – no need to wash first).
  8. Whip the Cream along with the remaining Sugar until stiff and then return the Berries to the Processor;  pulse just to combine the Berries with the Cream.
  9. Transfer to a serving bowl or parfait glasses.
  10. Refrigerate until ready to serve;  garnish with sliced or fanned Berries and additional Whipped Cream along with Mint Leaves, if so desired.


Yield:        6 Servings


Note:  You can whip the whole pint of cream and then save some for garnish.
