Creme Fraiche (Creme Fresh) for Strawberry Shortcake Swensen

This is the 3rd part of the Strawberry Shortcake Swensen but Creme Fraiche is used in many recipes.  It is pretty much used as Whipped Creme.

(This will hold for several hours. Make it ahead of time and refrigerate it.)

2 cups heavy whipping cream
½ cup white sugar
½ cup sour cream (you can substitute unflavored yogurt, but it won’t hold as well and you’ll have to do it at the last minute)
½ cup brown sugar (to sprinkle on top after you assemble the dessert)

Whip the cream with the white sugar.
When it holds a firm peak (test it by dipping in your spatula), fold in the sour cream.
You can do this by hand or by using the slowest speed on the mixer.
Made this for Norman, Carrie, and Mother. Used only one Pound Plus Cake and froze the other— Reduced Crème Fraiche recipe by half and used only two boxes of berries.
