  • 3   tablespoons 
    cold water
  • 1   envelope 
    unflavored gelatin
  • 4   cups 
    hulled strawberries
  • 1/2  cup 
  • 1   teaspoon 
    vanilla extract
  • 3/4  cup 
    reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1   cup 
    hulled strawberries, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2   teaspoons 
To prepare cream: Stir together water and gelatin in a small heatproof cup or bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on High until the gelatin has completely dissolved but the liquid is not boiling, 20 to 30 seconds. (Alternatively, bring 1/2 inch water to a gentle simmer in a small skillet. Set the bowl with the gelatin mixture in the simmering water until the gelatin has dissolved completely.) Stir the mixture until smooth.
Place strawberries, sugar and vanilla in a food processor and puree. Add sour cream; pulse to combine. With the motor running, slowly add the dissolved gelatin. Pour the cream into four 8-ounce bowls or wineglasses. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.
To prepare topping & serve: Toss diced strawberries and sugar in a small bowl; let stand until slightly juicy, about 2 minutes. Divide among the creams.

MAKE AHEAD TIP: Prepare through Step 2, cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. Add topping just before serving.
