3 lbs seedless grapes (red or green or a combination) 1/4 - 1/2 cup sugar (adjust to taste) 8 oz sour cream 8 oz cream cheese (softened) 1 tsp vanilla 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped 1/2 - 1 cup light brown sugar (adjust to taste)
Wash and stem grapes; drain. In large mixing bowl, combine sugar, sour cream, cream cheese, and vanilla till smooth. Pour over grapes; mix till thoroughly combined. In separate bowl, mix nuts and brown sugar together. (I use the maximum amount of brown sugar, because I love the mix of the flavor with the sweet/sour of the grapes.) Pour grape mixture into serving dish; sprinkle top with sugar and nut mixture. Chill and serve. This recipe makes a very large portion (suitable for a family gathering of 20 or possibly more, depending on appetites). Recipe may be halved. Keeps well in refrigerator for several days (if it lasts that long).
Warning: This stuff is addictive! The last few times I've made it, I've bypassed many of the meats and carbs and all the chocolate desserts...and ate this till I was ready to pop. from Frances in Wesley Chapel, Fl in the 7/30/2006 newsletter Page 1
