Raspberry Mousse

I'm sure you can use any type of berry for this recipe, but this time of year is raspberry season. Every recipe is better with really fresh ingredients, so use a local fruit that is in season. You could also use this as a dip or spread on graham crackers.

2 c raspberries
1/4 c sugar
1 T unflavored gelatin (1 packet)
2 c whipped cream, Dream Whip, or whipped topping

  1. Combine raspberries & sugar in a pot & heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved & raspberries are well smashed.
  2. Pour raspberry mixture into a large bowl & let cool in the refrigerator 5 minutes.
  3. Mix about half of the whipped cream into the raspberry mixture & stir to combine well.
  4. Carefully fold in the remaining whipped cream.
  5. Chill in bowls until set (about an hour).
  6. Top each serving with reaming berries & serve.
