My husband, two daughters and I first enjoyed this refreshing treat at our friends' house. They graciously shared the recipe after we all raved about it. The sherbet is always popular at ice cream socials.
"When my mother-in-law first served this torte, I thought it was the prettiest dessert I ever saw," recalls Betty Tabb of Mifflintown, Pennsylvania. "Not only does it keep well in the freezer, but different flavors of sherbet can be used to reflect the colors of the season."
"The recipe for this frosty treat is more than 30 years old, and kids love it," reports Elizabeth Stanton of Mt. Vernon, Washington. You'd never guess that powdered soft drink mix provides the yummy flavor.
Meet the Cook: When mealtime rolls around, my husband and our two teenagers are never sure what's in store - lots of my cooking is "trial and error", and I love trying out new things. Luckily, my family doesn't mind being my guinea pigs!
This recipe, however, actually originated with one of the boys. It was published in his Sunday school paper about 10 years ago. First-time tasters comment on how light it is...and say they can't believe it's made with cranberries.

From Mankato, Kansas, Barbara Thomas shares this frozen dessert that's an attractive change of pace from ice cream cakes. Scoops of pineapple, raspberry and lime sherbet top a crunchy crust of crisp rice cereal.
