I’m always on the lookout for new recipes to share with you. A couple of weeks ago we attended a high school graduation reception for our great nephew Tristan Rabbe. A pretty fluffy delicious fruit dish was served. I was able to track down the recipe. Tristan’s Aunt Sandy Anderson had made it for the reception, one recipe serves 12 and she made enough for over 100 guests, a real labor of love! Thank you Sandy for sharing the recipe! She said it is best made the same day you are going to use it, I think it would be great to use for a brunch, or you could use it as a dessert. I hope that you will enjoy it too!
1 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar, or a little less if your fruit is sweet
8 oz. cool whip
3 cups strawberries, quartered
1 cup black berries, halved if large
1 cup raspberries
1 cup blueberries
Beat cream cheese, until fluffy, beat in sugar, then fold in cool whip. Fold in berries and chill until serving. After you rinse the berries dry them on paper towels. If you want a pink color stir after the strawberries are added. This was served in individual clear plastic cups. For a family you could put it in a glass bowl.
Have a great week!

I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
