Iced Maple Cream with Berries

The berries makes or breaks this. Sweet summer love.Iced Maple Cream with berries

From: Tarah's Food Reviews

3 large egg yolks
3/4 cup chilled whipping cream, divided
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 tsp. maple extract
2 Tbs. raspberry jam
3 cups mixed berries, i.e. blackberries, raspberries, blueberries (I used frozen berried as fresh ones weren't in season yet when I originally made this.)

Whisk yolks, 1/4 cup cream and the syrup in a medium metal bowl. Set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water, making sure that the bottom of the bowl does NOT touch the water. Whisk constantly until your candy thermometer reads 175 degrees, about 3 minutes. Remove the bowl from over the water. Using an electric mixer, beat the mixture until it is cool and thick, about 3 more minutes.

Whip remaining 1/2 cup cream and maple extract in a large bowl until soft peaks form. Fold whipped cream into yolk mixture. cover and freeze maple cream until firm, at least 6 hours.

Whisk jam in a medium bowl to loosen. Add berries and toss to coat and let stand 15 minutes. Spoon berry mixture into dishes and top with maple cream.
