  • One prepared shortbread crust can substitute graham cracker crust, or use your own homemade shortbread crust recipe
  • 1 teaspoon (1 envelope) unflavored gelatin
  • 3 Tablespoons cold water
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup full-fat sour cream
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup fresh raspberries halved if large
  • 1 cup fresh blackberries halved if large
  • Zest of one small lemon about 2-3 teaspoons
  • Fresh whipped cream and more berries for garnish


  • Add the gelatin and cold water to a small saucepan off the heat. Let stand until solid, about 5 minutes. Turn the heat to low and cook, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves. Remove from the heat and let cool for just a few minutes - gelatin should still be liquidy.
  • Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the heavy cream, sour cream, confectioners' sugar and vanilla extract on high speed until soft peaks form. Stream in the melted gelatin liquid and beat until low speed until combined. Fold in the berries and lemon zest.
  • Spread the filling into the pie crust and smooth out the top. Cover loosely and refrigerate until set, about 3-4 hours or overnight. Just before serving, garnish with more fresh whipped cream and berries, if desired.
