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. In a small bowl, combine the wafer crumbs, coconut, pecans and butter; press onto the bottom of an ungreased 9-in. springform pan. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 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!"

"I couldn't find lemon sherbert, so I used rainbow sherbert,(orange, raspberry, and lime). Everyone loved it. I also used low fat vanilla wafers, lowering the calories."

"Absolutely delicious. Didn't change a thing. I've made it twice since last week. This one is a keeper. My husband has to have dessert with his dinner but they need to be light, low fat & low sugar."

"Can't buy lemon sherbert in S. Texas for some reason, so I will use orange and pineapple. Should be great!"
