Recipe Series Part 9

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

By Vanessa

One of my favorite things about summer is fresh and sweet strawberries! We can find strawberries here in Arizona almost all year round. The only problem is they are not always sweet. Here is a delicious trifle recipe I enjoy making with fresh strawberries and cream cheese. Mmmm tasty!!

Strawberry Cheesecake Trifle

2 8oz packages of cream cheese softened

2 cups powdered sugar

1 8oz container of sour cream

½ tsp vanilla

1 cup cool whip

4 tablespoons sugar

1 angel food cake or pound cake cut into bite size pieces

2 quarts fresh strawberries thinly sliced

In a large bowl beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until light and fluffy; add sour cream, ½ tsp vanilla

Fold the cool whip into cream cheese mixture

Fold in cake pieces; set aside

Combine strawberries and sugar (stir until sugar is dissolved)

Layer in a large glass bowl or trifle dish (alternating with 1/4 of the strawberries 1/3 of the cake mixture finishing with strawberries)

Cover with plastic wrap and chill several hours
