- 1 package (10 ounces) frozen raspberries or strawberries in syrup, thawed
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 cups sliced strawberries, 1 pint
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1 quart vanilla ice cream
- fresh sliced strawberries and whipped cream
Drain frozen raspberries or strawberries, reserving syrup.
Add enough water to the syrup to make 1 cup liquid. In a small saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; stir in the reserved berry liquid. Add sliced fresh strawberries to mixture.
Cook and stir over medium high heat until mixture thickens and boils.
Remove from heat; stir in the thawed raspberries (or strawberries) and the lemon juice.
Chill thoroughly. In parfait glasses, layer ice cream, berry sauce, sour cream, then more sauce.
Repeat layers. Top with a scoop of ice cream and garnish with a small dollop of whipped cream and sliced fresh strawberries, as desired.
