"This easy, sweet dip is excellent on a fruit platter. I usually serve this dip at baby showers because it has a lovely pastel pink color. The taste can easily be altered by using your choice of extract flavorings. Also, the dip is thick enough that it can also be used as a tea sandwich filling. This is my own creation." — HEATHERFEATHER

This is a great dip!!! Used it for a fruit platter & wound up putting it on lots of other things as well!!! Couldn't find the Raspberry Extract though, (searched high & low) so I substituted with Raspberry Jam, to taste!!!! It came out so smooth & tastey!!!! Thanks*
I was disappointed in this recipe because it smelled and tasted too strongly of sour cream. I had high hopes but will try one without the sour cream next time. Thanks for sharing.
I substituted it with strawberry extract since the raspberry was twice as much. Turned out nicely. I added more sugar (3/4 c) and more extract (2T) and also added about a tablespoon of vanilla extract. People really liked the dip. In addition to the fruit platter, I included angel food cake.
Always a hit! I "lightened" it with Lowfat Cream Cheese and Sour Cream with no flavor loss.
I made this for a baby shower this weekend. The pink color was perfect (it was a girl) and everyone loved it.I couldn't find raspberry extract so I added a container of raspberry yogurt--it tasted great.
This is good - tastes like a very thick raspberry yogurt. My raspberry extract was virtually colorless, so I added a handful of frozen raspberries for a pinker color (baby shower was for twin girls, so the pinker the better!). The recipe doesn't sound like it makes a lot, but you'd be surprised how far 2 cups of fruit dip will go! I served with both red & green grapes, strawberries, cantaloupe, honeydew and pears cut in thin wedges.
I subbed in strawberry extract and it turned out great!
This sounds delish but what do you dip in it?
