We used to have the most fabulous little lunch spot in town - Cafe de France. In addition to the delicious sandwiches and salads, they also had the most amazing desserts. Not only did they taste out of this world, but they looked positively beautiful.
One thing I always ordered was the Charlotte Rousse. It's basically a strawberry, gelatin, and whipped cream filling inside a ring of ladyfingers. What's not to love?
I finally found a recipe, and just had to make it. Guess what? It's simple as can be. So simple, in fact, that I might actually make homemade ladyfingers next time I make this. The recipe is over at Diana's Desserts.
