      Delicious! This is also fun to make and a great way to use strawberries! I only used 1/2 a vanilla bean (all that I had on hand) and it was still great. A note on the ingredients though - I used heavy whipping cream for the double cream - which I belive is the US equivalent. When I made this I was able to fill 10 ramkins - this is a great dessert to make ahead and store in the freezer! Thanks for sharing this keeper!
