Generously butter the inside of the mold and dust it with the sugar, shaking out what does not stick to the butter.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Make a meringue, with the egg whites, vanilla sugar, and pinch of salt. Fold in the crumbed macaroons. Put the soufflé mixture in the mold, and tap the mold twice lightly on the counter.
Put the mold in the oven and immediately reduce the heat to 350 degrees. Cook for 35 minutes, or until a thin skewer inserted in the center of the soufflé comes out clean. Take the mold out of the oven, let sit for 10 minutes, and then turn it out on a round flat platter a couple of inches larger than the mold.
Meanwhile, chop the strawberries coarsely and put them in a bowl with the raspberries. Add a pinch of salt. Stir vigorously for 1 minute to break up the raspberries, and then fold in the whipped cream.
Put the berry cream in the center hole of the soufflé and serve immediately.
I would call it my dream if I added stewed rhubarb to the berry mix.
