Frozen Raspberry Souffles
Makes 2 Servings
*1 pint raspberries
*1 whole egg
*1 1/2 tbls. honey
*2 tsp. Framboise or raspberry brandy
*1 cup heavy whipping cream
*Butter for preparing the parchment paper
*Two 12 x 3 1/2-inch strips of parchment paper
*Two 6-ounce souffle ramekins
1To make the souffles, clean and remove any stems from the raspberries. Reserve 20 nice berries for later use. Puree the raspberries in a food processor and strain to remove the seeds. Approximately 2/3 cup of puree should remain.
2Break the egg into a glass or stainless steel bowl or double boiler. Add the honey and whisk thoroughly.
3Place the bowl over a pan of hot, simmering water or double boiler. Beat continuously, using the whisk to scrape the egg from the sides and bottom of the bowl. Cook for approximately 1 minute or until the egg thickens slightly. Add the raspberry brandy to the puree and stir into the egg and honey mixture. Set the bowl aside.
4Whip the heavy cream and fold into the egg and raspberry mixture. Stir in all but 2 of the reserved whole raspberries. Refrigerate.
5To assemble the souffles, butter the strips of parchment paper. Form a collar around each ramekin mold, buttered side in, with the strip of parchment and secure with tape. Fill the mold to the top of the collar with the mixture and freeze at least 6 hours or overnight.
6To serve, remove the collar and top the souffles with the reserved raspberries. Allow to stand at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving.
