Favorite Summer Desserts & Spritzer ~

This Strawberry Spritzer is to die for delicious!! You can click here to get the recipe. I thought I had gotten it off of Heather Bullard's site, but I can't find it on there now. SO...I did a google search and this is the very same recipe. I made it last night for the first time and it is a keeper for sure. I cut it down by a third for just hubby and I . You MUST try it~
Doesn't this look so wonderful? It is called Pineapple Fluff and I hadn't had it for years and then my sister-in-law made it for her son's graduation party this year. It is very easy to make. All you do is take 8 ounces of cream cheese (softened) and beat it with 1/2 cup sugar. Beat it well and then add 1 can of drained crushed pineapple and then fold in 8 ounces of cool whip. That is all she did because she does not like coconut or nuts. I added coconut because I love it. I also put it in the refrigerator for a while to get cold. It is very good, but I will warn you it is very rich too~ This is another one of my favorite summer desserts and another very easy one...Sunshine Cake ~ You bake a yellow cake according to the box directions and let it cool. (or if you are so inclined to make one from scratch that would work too...although I have never been able to find a box of *scratch* in my grocery store...lol) Next you make a 3 ounce box of instant vanilla pudding and beat in 8 ounces of cream cheese. (I beat the cream cheese until softened and then alternately add in the dry pudding mix and the milk) and spread it on the cake. Then put a layer of drained crushed pineapple on top and then a layer of whipped cream or cool whip. You can sprinkle the top with chopped walnuts too and it is wonderful!! I keep this cake in the refrigerator and it is soooo good. Hope you enjoyed these recipes. Please let me know if you try one and have a lovely day... Blessings~

Hi Sandi,
It all sounds delicious, especially the spritzer since the temps are going way up again here. I am going to make my list for the store today. I too love coconut, so I'll have to try that one too... well, maybe all three recipes. Thanks, I really like trying new recipes and get so bored with the same items all the time. Have a wonderful day!
