This is a great recipe, but, as others, I make it a little differently. I use a large container of whipped cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, to taste, (depends on how sweet the grapes are and I keep it a little tart),vanilla and a couple of tablespoons of Cool Whip to keep it creamy. I am looking for a creamy texture that does not firm up completely in the refrigerator. I use green and red grapes. I wash, stem and DRY them with paper towels. I then toast pecans (amount is your choice) and cool. I combine cream cheese mixture with enough grapes (about 2-3 lbs), put half in clear bowl, sprinkle with brown sugar (we like a thick layers and half the toasted nuts and spray everything with butter spray. Top with remaining grape mixture. Refrigerate overnight. The brown sugar melts and makes this something special. Before serving, I sprinkle the top with another layer of brown sugar, spray with butter spray all over top so it melts somewhat and then top with remaining toasted pecans. Of course, since it's so rich, I only make this for special occasions, but have many requests on how I make this. My husband's principal last year would send home "please" requests to make it for her several times.
I have this recipe - got it from my mother-in-law. Prior to serving I put a 1/4 in layer of brown sugar on top & then another layer of toasted pecans. It finishes the dish perfectly. Try it, you'll love it!!
These are good. A little sweet, I cut the sugar in half. I used a combination of red and black seedles grapes, added some orange zest and a sprinkle of nutmeg. Very nice, thanks.
We had this dish at a gathering this weekend and the woman put Heath Toffee Bits on top, it was to die for! I made the recipe myself this week and used a bag of red and a bag of green seedless grapes and doubled the ingredients for the sauce and included the Toffee Bits. I brought it to work and everyone asked me for the recipe.
A "you can cuot on it too be a yummy taste" recipe. Nothing unique...but still tasty :)
Yum! The dressing is a little thick, which is fine with me. I know a lot of people would probably prefer it a bit thinner, and if that is the case then I would reduce the amount of cream cheese used. I also added about a cup of walnuts. Great way to get your fruit in!
This was amazingly good! It was the hit of the party! I made this with red and green grapes... and orange zest is a must! I made this with low fat sour cream and cream cheese. It was perfect!
Simply delicious! My family has never eaten so many grapes. This is a recipe that is requested over and over. The only change I make is that I sprinkle brown sugar over the top. Once you make this recipe be prepared to make at every family function :)
