  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 (1/4-ounce) packets unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 3 cups sour cream

Step 1Cook the water with the gelatin in a saucepan over low heat until the gelatin dissolves, 3 minutes. Add the sugar and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the vanilla and whipping cream and continue to cook, bringing the mixture almost to a simmer. Do not boil. When hot, add the sour cream and remove the pan from heat. Use a whisk to blend well.

Step 2Pour the mixture into a 6-cup nonstick mold (or spray a mold with nonstick cooking spray). Refrigerate the dessert until set, about 4 to 5 hours.

Step 3Unmold and serve.
