Speedy Strawberry Bavarian


This is a nostalgic recipe for me.
My mom used to make is quite regularly
and I can remember having to whip the Dream Whip for this recipe.
It always used to feel like forever until it was ready.
My mom gave me a copy of her favorite cookbook,
"Purity All Purpose Flour Cook Book"
when I got married and that is where you can find the original recipe.


Ingredients
1 (3-ounce) package strawberry flavored jelly powder
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup boiling water
3/4 cup cold water
1 (2-ounce) packaged whipped dessert topping
1-1/2 cup fresh strawberries


Dissolve the jelly powder and sugar in boiling water.
Stir in cold water and chill until the consistency of unbeaten egg white.


Meanwhile, whip packaged dessert topping according to directions on package.
Fold 1-1/2 cups into thickened gelatine along with fresh berries.
Chill until firm. Garnish with remaining whipped topping.


I think to make this recipe even easier you probably could
substitute the whipped topping with Cool Whip.
Also, you can make any combination you can come up with,
orange jello with oranges,
lemon jello with blueberries,
peach jello with oranges or peaches
cherry jello with cherries or strawberries,
the possibilities are endless :)

  9. I love this type of dessert. Simple and fruity, and strawberries fresh off the vine can not be beaten!
    Sounds yum!
