To continue the raspberry theme..

Raspberry Bavarian Cream

4 cups fresh or frozen (not in syrup) raspberries (or strawberries)
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. (not just 1 packet, be sure to measure it) unflavored gelatin
3 tbsp. cold water
3 tbsp. boiling water
1 tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup heavy whipping cream

Thaw and drain the berries, if using frozen. Combine the berries and sugar in a bowl and mash the berries. Let stand 30 minutes. Soak the gelatin in the cold water for 10 minutes. Add the boiling water and stir to dissolve. Add the gelatin and lemon juice to the berry mixture. Whip the cream to soft peaks and gently fold into the berry mixture. Pour into a mold and chill at least 6 hours before unmolding. Alternately, the mixture can be placed in cooked pie shells and chilled. Serves 8 to 10.
