For maximum volume and a silky smooth texture, make sure the whipping cream and sour cream are ice cold when blended.

  • 1 tablespoon strawberry-flavored gelatin
  • 2 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 (8-oz.) container sour cream

How to Make It

  1. Stir together first 2 ingredients in a small bowl; cool completely (about 20 minutes).

  2. Beat whipping cream and gelatin mixture at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy; gradually add sugar, beating until soft peaks form. Stir in sour cream, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring just until blended after each addition.
