This Swedish-style dessert is a creamy and custardy favorite that can be changed every time you make it just by adding different fruit! Our recipe for Floating Swedish Creme is great for holiday parties or for enjoying with loved ones!

What You'll Need

  • 1 pint half-and-half
  • 1 envelope (1/4 ounce) unflavored gelatin
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 pint sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 can (16 ounces) sliced peaches, drained

What to Do

  1. In a small saucepan, over low heat, heat the half and half, gelatin, and sugar, stirring constantly for 8 to 10 minutes, until all the sugar is dissolved. Do not allow to boil.

  2. Remove from the heat and cool for 5 minutes. With a wire whisk, beat in the sour cream, and vanilla and almond extracts.

  3. Pour into a 9" glass pie plate and chill for 2 to 3 hours.

  4. Top with the sliced peaches.

Not everyone lives in the USoA! What is "half and half"? What weight is 3/4 cup? Thank you.

Hi there! Half and half is readily available in the dairy section at most US and Canadian grocery stores/chains such as Walmart. If you are located in the UK, half cream or single cream is an equivalent substitution. If you are in Australia, you can substitute extra light thickened cream (12% fat) for half and half. 3/4 cup is equal to 6oz (US) or 177 ml. If you are in another country or have any other questions, let us know. :) We're here to help. Enjoy!

Half Half is half cream and half milk. Light cream is also very close, the difference being the amount of fat. Cups are volume, not weight. One cup is 8 "liquid" ounces or 16 tablespoons. 3/4 cup would be 6 ounces or 12 tablespoons. BTW, there are websites allover the place that do or give you these conversions. We have the same problems here in the USA. What temperature fahrenheit is "Gas 4"?

PS I suspect the only Americans who know what treacle is are parents of children who watched Thomas the Tank Engine. My son was a BIG fan. His dad and I liked watching it, too. When he turned 3, he had a Thomas the Tank Engine themed birthday party.
