Todays recipe is called Swedish Cream for a reason – it is creamy! It is light and delicious and made even more yummy and pretty when it is topped with fresh fruit. It is the perfect light and lovely dessert for your Valentine.
A layer of fresh raspberry sauce on top is pretty much pure prefection.
