  • 5 egg yolks
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup cream Sherry
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 3 cups raspberries, some reserved for garnish

Add sugar and beat thoroughly until sugar dissolves, about 6 to 8 minutes. Pour in Sherry and stir thoroughly with spoon until custard becomes thick, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove from heat. Place custard in bowl and allow to cool.

Step 2To serve, beat cream until stiff. Fold into custard and blend completely. Add raspberries, turning them carefully with spoon until completely covered by custard-cream. Place rasberries and cream in 6 dessert glasses and refrigerate 30 minutes. Before serving, dip reserved raspberries into powdered sugar and place on top of each dessert glass. Serve cold.
