Swirled Sherbet Dessert Recipe

“Lemon and orange sherbet are swirled over a coconut-and-pecan crust in this lovely, refreshing dessert,” says Agnes Ward of Stratford, Ontario. It has a tropical kind of appeal on warm, breezy days.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + freezing YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup crushed vanilla wafers (about 30 wafers)
  • 1/3 cup flaked coconut
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 pint lemon sherbet, softened
  • 1 pint orange sherbet, softened

Directions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, combine wafer crumbs, coconut, pecans and butter; press onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-in. springform pan. Bake 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.
  • 2. Arrange scoops of sherbet over crust, alternating flavors. Cut through sherbet with a knife to swirl. Cover and freeze overnight. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving. Yield: 12 servings.

"I used rainbow sherbet, too. I also used light Country Crock instead of butter and reduced fat Nilla wafers. It turned out great with lower fat!"

"What kind of pan you use depends on how you will serve it. If you want it on display first before serving then the springform pan will allow you to get the crust out of the pan and put it on a plate. If you just want to serve it like a pie--then a pie pan should work. Let us know when you try it!!"

"To lower the calories even more, use Sugar-Free vanilla cookies and the new Sugar-Free sherberts! Use any combination of the citrus sherberts. Try the Mango Sherbert, swirled with the lime and top off with a dollop of Cool Whip (Sugar Free, of course) and shavings of lime zest. Magnificent."
