1 package (4-serving size) Jell-O Brand Gelatin, Raspberry flavor

¾ c boiling water

½ c cold water

Ice cubes

1 c  heavy or whipping cream, whipped

2 TBS sugar (or if following a low carb diet, add 1 to 2 TBS of sugar equivalent, such as Splenda or Equal. Adjust to taste.)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Raspberries (garnish optional)

Mint leaves (garnish optional)


Dissolve gelatin in boiling water.  Combine cold water and ice cubes to make 1 cup.  Add to gelatin.  Place bowl in larger bowl of ice and water.  Let stand, stirring occasionally, until gelatin is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes.

In the meantime, whip cream.  Put cold heavy cream, sugar and vanilla in mixing bowl. With an electric hand mixer or a standing mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat cream (you can use a hand whisk; it just will take longer).

Fold in whipped cream.

Spoon gelatin/cream mixture into individual soufflé cups with paper collars (see note below).

Chill until firm, about 2 hours.  Remove collars.  Garnish with raspberries and mint leaves, if desired.  Yields 4 servings.

Note:  To make collars, cut pieces of waxed paper or foil long enough to wrap around dishes and overlap slightly; fold in half lengthwise.  Wrap doubled paper or foil around dish, extending about 1 inch above rim.  Secure with tape.
