Triple Berry Delight

Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries...the summer fruit season is so yummy!  For years, my mother-in-law has made the most delicious fruit dip.  She mixes 1 8oz block of cream cheese with 1 7 oz. jar of Jet Puff.  It is the best fruit dip and goes with just about any type of fruit.  After trying a grape salad recipe (Grape Salad), I decided to play with the ingredients to see what I could come up with.  I took the cream cheese and Jet Puff from my mother-in -law's recipe and the sour cream with vanilla from the grape salad recipe.  Then I decided to only use berries that are currently in season (although I think almost any fruit would be great).  The outcome was Triple Berry Delight. Ingredients: 1 7oz. Jet Puff
1 8oz. block cream cheese (softened)
1/2 C. sour cream
3 tsp. vanilla
7-8 C. mixed berries (I used fresh strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries.) Rinse and cut berries.  I quartered the strawberries, halved the raspberries, and left the blueberries whole.  In a stand mixer, combine Jet Puff, softened cream cheese, sour cream, and vanilla.  Using the whisk attachment, whisk ingredients for several minutes .  Once mixture is smooth, fold in berries with a large spoon.  Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 1 hour (enough time to let the mixture set a little).  Serve as a side dish or a dessert.  It is "berry" wonderful!!! :)

  1. This looks like Heaven for Jared! I'll probably need to make this some time this summer. Oh, seeing Grandma's bowl makes my whole heart happy (and sad). :) What a great recipe you created!
