Red, White and Blue Dessert Recipe

Red, White and Blue Dessert Recipe

I changed a recipe I found and ended up with this rich, fresh-tasting dessert. Decorated to resemble a flag, it's perfect for the Fourth of July or any other patriotic occasion. —Sue Gronholz, Beaver Dam, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:18 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream, whipped
  • 2 quarts strawberries, halved, divided
  • 2 quarts blueberries, divided

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar and extracts until fluffy. Fold in whipped cream. Place a third of the mixture in a 4-qt. bowl. Reserve 20 strawberry halves and 1/2 cup blueberries for garnish.
  • 2. Layer half of the remaining strawberries and blueberries over cream mixture. Top with another third of the cream mixture and the remaining berries. Spread the remaining cream mixture on top. Use the reserved strawberries and blueberries to make a "flag" on top. Yield: 18 servings.

"Another Memorial Day and another request for this delicious and easy dessert! Fresh tasting and full of summer flavor. I use Neufchatel (low fat cream cheese, ok, just a little lower, but every little bit helps) and no difference in taste."

"I made this for our family picnic today. I put it in a 13" x 9". I ended up with not enough of the cream to put the last layer on , I ended up making another 1/2 batch of the cream mixture to cover the top. It was completely gone, everyone loved it!"
