Want a super-easy dessert for July 4th weekend?
This trifle combines sweetened, beaten cream cheese with fresh berries. There’s no cooking: Just add sugar and vanilla to the cream cheese, and layer it with the berries.
It’s like an unbaked cheesecake, a nice change from the classic British custard-and-pound-cake trifle.
Thanks to Taste of Home for the recipe.
1. BEAT the cream cheese, sugar and extracts in a large bowl until fluffy. Fold in the whipped cream.
2. PLACE a third of the mixture in a 4-quart bowl. Reserve 20 strawberry halves and 1/2 cup of the blueberries for the garnish.
3. LAYER half of the the remaining strawberries and blueberries over the cream mixture. Top with another third of the cream mixture and the remaining berries. Spread the remaining cream mixture on top.
4. CREATE a flag design on top with the reserved strawberries and blueberries.
