Copycat Ruth’s Chris Sweet Vanilla Cream with Berries

A few weeks ago, I had a wonderful birthday dinner at Ruth’s Chris Steak House.  The food was absolutely to-die-for!  I remember feeling a little bit sad when I took my last bite of filet mignon.  It was heavenly!  Just when I thought I couldn’t eat another bite, the waiter brought our dessert.  It was a small dish of vanilla cream with fresh berries on top.

Oh…my…god!  Words cannot describe how good that stuff was!  I knew I had to figure out to make this for myself! 

As soon as I came home that night, I got right on the internet to research recipes. There were hundreds of variations, but nothing seemed to fit the bill so I improvised.  I took (what I thought were) the best parts of several different recipes and made my own.

What a luxurious dessert!  It turned out very rich and creamy and silky smooth.  It was everything I had remembered.  I will definitely be making this dessert again and again!

A word of caution though.  This recipe has a lot of hands on time.  You can’t really walk away from it while you’re making it.  It’s definitely a food of love.

This dessert is quite impressive — enough for company.  I can’t wait to have our friends over for dinner so I can make this for them, or for a Mother’s Day brunch or dinner (hint, hint!).

And, I’m imagining how good this will be with fresh blueberries from our yard this summer!  Yum!

  1. The instructions never said when to add the vanilla and now I’m done making it. Oh no! When should I have added it? Is it too late to add it? Is it ruined?

  2. The recipe didn’t say when to add the vanilla so I added to the egg yoke/sugar mixture before blending with the cream. Outstanding!
