Almost too pretty to eat. You'll love all the Ooo's and Ahhh's from this dessert! I received this recipe at a woman's golf tournament -- dish to pass event! Excellent!!
- Cream together cream cheese and confectioners sugar.
- Add sour cream, vanilla and 1/4 tsp almond flavoring.
- Set this mixture aside.
- In separate bowl whip the whipping cream and add to cream cheese mixture.
- Tear up angel food cake and mix in with cheese mixture.
- In separate bowl (s) place strawberries and blueberries 3/4 cup sugar and 3 Tbsp almond flavoring.
- (You can mix the berries together or keep separate, for a pretty red, white and blue look,if separate divide sugar and almond flavoring between the two bowls).
- In a clear glass bowl alternate layers of the cream cheese mixtures and the berries.
- Garnish the top with berries.
- Refrigerate for a couple of hours.
- This looks absolutely beautiful and taste just as great!
- Peaches work really well with this as well.
This was so good! I only used about half the powdered sugar as suggested, and I'm glad. It was plenty sweet. I loved the almond flavoring on the fruit. Instead of angel food cake, I used a sour cream pound cake by Paula Deen. It was fabulous!
This was excellent and I will definitely make again next year. Everyone loved it and many came back for seconds. It was difficult to make the layers look nice as the cream cheese layer tends to spread out. I will try harder next year and do thicker fruit layers.
I omitted the almond extract as my husband is allergic. I added extra vanilla extract instead. I also made it much healthier by using only one cup of confectioner's sugar in the cream cheese layer. Two cups seems excessive. I also did not add ANY sugar to the fruit. Strawberries and blueberries are naturally sweet enough that they don't need added sugar.
Made this for 4th of July 2012. Worth the time and effort, a hit. A large trifle bowl was nearly devoured at the bbq we attended. I also didn't use the almond, I wanted the fresh fruit flavor to shine and it did. Did cut the powdered sugar in half and probably could of gotten away with only 1/2. Will be a keeper for sure.
