Mid Week Munchies

One last summer recipe! This recipe is refreshing, simple, and berrylicious. I love to make this recipe for friends and family: it is a crowd pleaser.


Frozen Berry Desert

Crust:

  • 1 cup graham crackers
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter

In Cuisinart: crush graham crackers, add sugar and butter.

Pat crust into 12 inch fluted pan. This is the best pan to use, it makes removing and serving dessert easy!

Berry Blend:

  • 1 8oz. pkg of cream cheese ~ softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 cups chopped frozen berries
  • 1 pkg cool whip ~ softened

I love to use my frozen summer berries: strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, blueberries. (*If using fresh fruit, reduce juice to 1/4 cup) I like to chop my strawberries just a little to make them more manageable in the pan.

In Kitchen Aid: beat cream cheese and sugar throughly. Add juice and berries and mix.

Fold in Cool Whip. Pour into pan with graham cracker crust and chill in freezer for at least 4 hours, can be chilled overnight if necessary.

My sister got this recipe from the Kraft website about 5 years ago. I have searched many times for it, but have yet to find their original recipe.

***Don't forget today is 09-09-09!
