Raspberry Souffles

I love making souffles.  They seem sophisticated and complicated.  But they are not.  This recipe only has 4 ingredients.  Quite simple to make.  Souffles have been around since the 1700s, making them a classic dessert.  I've shared my EASY CHOCOLATE SOUFFLES with you before and they are certainly delicious, but with Valentine's Day approaching, a Raspberry Souffle seemed appropriate.  Delicate pink in color and not too sweet.  Top with off with some fresh whipped cream and some tangy raspberries.  Your Valentine will love you forever!

The SUPREME Valentine's Day Dessert
Whip egg whites until stiff peaks form
and they are glossy.
Puree raspberries in a food processor or blender
and then strain through a sieve to remove seeds.
Fold egg whites into puree until
no white streaks remain.
Fill ramekins to the rim and level off.
Place on baking sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
Serve with sweetened whipped cream and
fresh raspberries.  Enjoy with someone you love!

Raspberry Souffles

6 ounces fresh raspberries
1/4 cup plus 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
4 egg whites
powdered sugar for dusting

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Puree raspberries in a blender or food processor.  Strain through a fine mesh sieve to remove seeds.  You should have approximately 2 cups of bright red puree when finished.  Add 2 teaspoons sugar to the puree and set aside.  With an electric mixer, beat the egg whites until they begin to thicken.  Slowly add the 1/4 cup sugar and mix until stiff peaks are formed and the egg whites are glossy.  Slowly and carefully begin folding egg whites into the puree, about 1/3 at a time.  Continue folding until no white streaks remain.  Be careful not to deflate mixture.  Spoon batter into ramekins filling to the top.  Level off with a spatula.  Place on baking sheet and bake approximately 8-10 minute or until souffle rises 1/2-inch above rim of spatula.  Dust with powdered sugar and serve immediately. 

Prep Time:  Approximately 20 minutes     Cook Time:  Approximately 10 minutes
