I usually shy away from recipes with too few ingredients, but also forgetting that Oscar Wilde quote: Simple pleasures are the last refuge of the complex!

This simple recipe blew me away, from my Southern Cookbook:

1 cup sugar, 1 envelope unflavored gelatin, 2 cups whipping cream, 16 oz. sour cream, 1 tsp. vanilla.

Combine sugar & gelatin in saucepan, stir in whipping cream, let stand 1 min.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly with a wire whisk, until gelatin dissolves, 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat, and cool.

Stir sour cream and vanilla into gelatin mixture, pour into serving bowl, cover and chill for 3 hours or until set.

When serving in a bowl, top with your favorite berries! Awesome, even without adding berries!

Perhaps there are others who can come up with tweeks to this recipe, perhaps adding a licquer!

That sounds really interesting, but isn't that a lot of sugar? Somehow an entire cup seems like too much considering the rest of the ingredients.

But maybe I should reserve comment until I try it.

That's pretty close to panna cotta. Same idea but different proportions of ingredients. There's less sugar in panna cotta. Probably the additional sugar is due to the sour cream, which isn't in panna cotta. But it's close enough to panna cotta that I think your recipe would be very good. The link should give you some ideas for tweaks.

I've got a really simple gelatin pie recipe that I've used for years and my family loves.
2/3 cup boiling water
1 pkg -4 servings- strawberry -or any flavor- jello
1/2 cup cold water
1 tub whipped cream
1 graham cracker crust

Stir boiling water into gelatin and stir until completely dissolved. Mix cold water and ice to measure one cup. Add gelatin and stir until ice is dissolved. Stir in whipped topping and whisk with wire whisk until smooth. Refrigerate 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture is thick and will mound. Spoon into crust and refrigerate 4 to 8 hours.

How about using OP's recipe to be wrapped in a fried / toasted flour tortilla??

Served over Crepes would work too.

I didn't find this dessert to be that sweet, I believe the sourness of the sour cream is what helps to reduce the sweetness.

The other recipes posted are worthy of a try as well! Thanks!
