You will be so surprised at how easy this is, and yet how gorgeous it turns out. I've made it several times, and it's always a pretty treat! It's fitting for special company, or just for a lovely family dessert. It's very light and fruity, and a great summertime treat!

I borrowed this photo - temporarily! When summer comes, I'll be making this again, and you'll get MY photo! :o)

How to Make Charlotte Russe

Step-by-Step

  1. 30-minutes preparation time = construction time; this will take approximately 3+ hours to set up, in your refrigerator, after it is assembled.
  2. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add the ice cream by spoonfuls, stirring until ice cream is completely melted. Chill until thickened and is soft-set.
  3. Meanwhile, trim off ends of ladyfingers, and place cut ends down, all around insides of an 8" springform pan. Spoon slightly set gelatin mixture into springform pan, and chill until firm, at least 3+ hours.
  4. Remove sides of springform pan. garnish with whipped topping, fruit and mint leaves, if desired.
