Do you like raspberries? I love raspberries, but they're so pricey I usually don't splurge on them except at Christmas. It occurred to me this is the second year in a row I made a dessert for the office Christmas luncheon which featured raspberries and cream cheese.
This dish is called Red Velvet Trifle, and it was so easy I felt like I was "assembling" more than baking. Basically, you make a Red Velvet Cake out of a box (purists may feel free to take the harder road), slice it up, then layer it with a concoction of cream cheese, lemon zest, low-fat vanilla yogurt and powdered sugar, then top with the berries. I had several requests for the recipe, and since it was such a hit I thought I would share it with you. Yummy and easy, feeds a crowd, looks pretty ... this meets all my requirements for a holiday dessert!
I found the recipe in the Southern Living Christmas at Home magazine, but it's also available right here.
