    Celestial Cream

    This Celestial Cream is a hands-down crowd-pleaser! I'd stack this one up
    against any dessert you can name. It's a light and creamy dessert to grace
    dinner party, a Holiday feast or your family meal.

    3 cups heavy cream
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    2 packages gelatin (4 1/2 tsps.)
    9 tablespoons cold water
    3 cups sour cream
    1 package red raspberries, preferrably frozen and thawed or fresh
    raspberries with lots of sugar in them

    12 servings

    Combine the cream and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir with a
    whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Soften the gelatin in the cold water.
    Whisk gelatin into the cream. When the gelatin is dissolved, whisk in the
    sour cream. Stir only until well-blended and smooth. Pour this Creme
    Celeste into a lightly-oiled mold. Chill for 4-5 hours until firm.
    Unmold by setting mold in warm water for several inutes. Upend it onto a
    white platter. Surround the sides of this incredible Cream with the red
    raspberries. Save a few for the top.
