Frosty Orange Creme Dessert
I believe in heaven.
And I believe that in heaven, we will be eating stuff like this……. :)
I have loved the orange/creme flavor of things since I was a little girl. But this delicious recipe intensified that love. The creme in this recipe is rich and so smooth, topped with the blast of orange sherbet on top………………..Oh yum. You will not be disappointed. Promise.
It really is the perfect summer treat.
I got this recipe from a Kraft magazine that I get in the mail every once in a while for free. I will list the recipe here but will share my alterations at the end.
Frosty Orange Creme Layered Dessert
2 cups orange sherbet
1 package cream cheese (8 oz)
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup orange juice
1 tub (8 oz) cool whip
First, line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with foil. Spread the sherbet onto bottom of prepared pan to form even layer.Freeze 10 min.
Meanwhile, beat cream cheese in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Gradually add condensed milk and juice, beating until blended. Gently stir in cool whip. Pour over sherbet in pan.
Freeze 3 hours. To unmold, invert pan onto plate; remove foil.
**I increased the sherbet to about 3 cups and would next time only use half of the creamy topping. While it is incredibly good, the topping is pretty rich. It turns out to be twice as much as the sherbet and I think it would taste much better and more balanced, if the two flavors were equal in quantity to each other.
But don’t let this fool you. It is the perfect cool, sweet treat.
