it may not look that good, but again, this is one of our family’s favorite recipes!!! My friends, the Porters brought this to a potluck and it was a HIT….of course I pilfered the recipe. That tends to be my style….I find something I like and either beg, borrow or steal (really–more on that the closer it gets to the Holidays)…or if those methods don’t work, i try to recreate it. I was blessed this time…they handed it over with out too much force….just a promise for cinnamon rolls. I made this once and now it is a regular….well, as regular as grapes on sale is…..which right now, they are plenty…so, here is the recipe:
- 1 lb green grapes
- 1 lb red grapes
- 8 oz cream cheese
- 8 oz sour cream
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 Cup brown sugar–this is a perfect place to substitute sucanat. PLUS–I never use all this.
- ¾ cup chopped and toasted pecans
Combine cream cheese, sour cream, vanilla and ¾ C. of brown sugar. Carefully stir in grapes. Before serving top with remaining brown sugar and pecans.
