Strawberry Mousse
From Family Circle All-Time Favorite Recipes


1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup cold water
2 cups hulled, sliced strawberries
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup heavy cream, chilled
3 Tbsp confectioners' sugar
Whole strawberries for garnish


Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a small saucepan; let stand 1 minute to soften. Stir over low heat until gelatin is dissolved, about 1 minute. Remove from heat.

Place hulled strawberries, granulated sugar, and gelatin mixture in a food processor or blender. Whirl to purée. Pour into a bowl. Chill until mixture mounds when dropped from a spoon, 1 hour.

Beat cream and confectioners' sugar in a chilled bowl until soft peaks form. Stir one-quarter of cream into strawberry purée to lighten mixture. Fold in remaining cream.

Spoon into 6 stemmed glasses or dessert bowls, dividing equally. Chill 2 hours. Or, after lightening purée with cream, layer remaining whipped cream with strawberry purée in stemmed glasses. Garnish with whole berries.
