Fresh Strawberry Dessert Recipes

One of the most attractive desserts that can be made of
gelatine is strawberry cream fluff. It is especially delicious
in warm weather, but plenty of time must be allowed for it to
The gelatine mixture is piled into stemmed glasses and then
surrounded by thin pieces of sponge cake or ladyfingers, as
here shown. A few fresh strawberries or strawberries that have
been canned in thick sirup make an attractive garnish. If a
deeper shade of pink is desired than the strawberry juice
gives, pink coloring may be added before the whipped cream is
beaten into the gelatine.

1 Tb. unflavored gelatine
1/4 c. cold water
1-1/2 c. strawberry juice Juice of one lemon

Soak the gelatine in the cold water. Heat the strawberry
juice to the boiling point, and add it to the soaked gelatine.
Add the lemon juice and sugar and place the gelatine where it
