A Berry-Licious Christmas Dessert Recipe

It's almost Christmas and if you're having company (or bringing a dish to a host) you might be in need of a great Christmas dessert recipe. While I can't help you with all of your holiday stress, I can help you out in this department. Here's a recipe for a Christmas dessert that even the most discerning dessert lovers will appreciate.

A Wonderful Christmas Souffle

So what is this wonderful Christmas dessert that I am referring to? It's a berry-licious Christmas souffle! If you're going to make this lovely masterpiece, you're going to need to grab a variety of ingredients. Here's your shopping list:

2 1/3 cup cream
1 1/3 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup super-fine sugar
1/2 cup Grand Mariner
2 pints strawberries
2 pints raspberries
2 pints blueberries
1 pint blackberries
1 and 1/4 cup cherries
1/4 cup water
8 separated eggs
4 sheets of leaf gelatin
2 and ΒΌ tablespoons powder sugar

Making Your Christmas Dessert

So now that you know what ingredients you need, how about putting it all together? Just remember, this isn't one of those 5-minute desserts and good things come to those who wait.

First, get out 10 ramekins. Then put the milk in a saucepan and gently heat it till it's almost at a boil. Then, take one third of your super-fine sugar and whisk it with your egg yolks until it is creamy. Then continue to whisk the eggs while adding the heated milk. Put the mixture back over the heat and continue to heat it until it thickens enough to coat your spoon. Just make sure you do not bring the mixture to a boil.

Soak your gelatin in cold water and stir it into your cooked egg/sugar/milk mixture. Transfer this mixture to a bowl and allow it to cool completely, stirring it occasionally to prevent it from setting.

Now whisk your cream and egg whites into a stiff meringue. Add what remains of your super-fine sugar to this mixture.

Next, fold the meringue and Grand Mariner into the custard mixture. Now pour the mixture into your dessert cups. You'll need to freeze the mixture for at least 12 hours, so you might want to leave them in the freezer overnight.

When you're ready to serve this great Christmas dessert, mix all of the berries and add the powder sugar. Pour the berry mixture into each ramekin on top of the custard and your berry-licious dessert is ready!
