Ingredients

  • 1 cup (250 mL) sugar
  • 4 cups (1 L) fresh blueberries or frozen blueberries thawed
  • 2 pouches (1/4 oz/7 g each) unflavoured gelatine
  • 2 cups (500 mL) 35 % cream
  • 20 large ladyfinger cookies or Savoiardi biscuits
  • 2-3 cups (500-750 mL) fresh mixed berries for garnish

Preparation

Using a food processor, puree sugar and blueberries together until smooth. Pour 1 cup (250 mL) of puree into a saucepan and add gelatine. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 5 min. Whisk in remaining puree and refrigerate until it thickens but no longer than 2 hours. It must not set.

Whip cream to stiff peaks. Gradually beat in blueberry puree mixture.

Line the bottom and sides of a 9-inch (23 cm) spring-form pan with parchment paper. Place a layer of cookies in the bottom of the pan. Pour half of the blueberry cream over the cookies. Place a second layer of cookies gently over top. Pour remaining blueberry cream over the cookies.

Garnish with fresh mixed berries. Refrigerate overnight to set.

Unmold from spring-form pan just before serving.
