Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon Cold Water
  • 2 teaspoons Unflavored Gelatin
  • 2 cups Heavy Cream
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla Bean Paste (or extract)

Instructions

  1. Start by sprinkling gelatin into a bowl with water and let stand for 1 minute to soften. If you want to ensure the gelatin is completely dissolved, place in a saucepan and heat over low heat until gelatin is dissolved.

  2. In a large saucepan, bring heavy cream and sugar to a boil over medium-high heat. Whisk often. Once it begins to boil, remove from heat and whisk in gelatin mixture and vanilla. I love to use vanilla beans, vanilla bean paste, or pure vanilla extract.

  3. Divide the cream mixture into four 1/2 cup ramekins. Let the mixture come to room temperature before putting in the refrigerator.

  4. Cover and let chill for at least 4 hours to allow time to set-up.To serve and invert on a plate, dip ramekins into a bowl of hot water for several seconds. Run a knife along the edge of each ramekin and invert onto the center of a serving plate.

  5. Top with your favorite fresh fruits or sauce.
